SUMMIT, NJ - Fourteen Hilltop City roads will be the focus of two road improvement projects beginning August 8 and continuing through August 14, weather permitting.

Milling and paving operations on the entire length of Crescent Avenue and Hillside Avenue will begin August 8 and continue through August 11, weather permitting. Street closures for through traffic will be in effect throughout the duration of milling and paving operations. Written notifications will be delivered to all affected residents, who are instructed to park on neighboring side streets before 7 a.m. Residents are also able to park in the parking lot located at the back of Lincoln-Hubbard Elementary School.

In addition, a micro-surfacing project will begin August 9 and continue through August 14, weather permitting. Written notifications will be delivered to all affected residents. During the micro-surfacing process, access to driveways will be prohibited until the application is dry. Residents should park on neighboring side streets before 7 a.m. Work on each street will take one day to complete. The current schedule is as follows:

  • Wednesday, August 9: Chapel Street, Yale Street, and Princeton Street

  • Thursday, August 10: Woodland Avenue

  • Friday, August 11:  Silver Lake Drive, Windsor Road, and Cleveland Road

  • Monday, August 14: Shunpike Road, Linden Place, Oak Forest Lane, Harvey Court, and Harvey Drive

Micro-surfacing is a cost efficient surface treatment to renew a road surface and extend the life of the pavement. During the process, a layer of asphalt emulsion is blended with finely crushed stone for traction to protect the pavement from moisture penetration and oxidation.

Emergency vehicles will have access to roads in critical situations. For more information, contact the Department of Community Services at 908-273-6404. If it is necessary to leave cars on the street overnight, contact the Summit Police Department at 908-273-0051 to avoid being ticketed.
