SUMMIT, NJ - The DeForest Avenue construction project, which began in July of 2016 and was delayed due -- in part -- to the Transportation Trust Fund impasse, is moving forward with crews making marked progress during the past three-plus weeks.

In the next six weeks, signals and street lights will continue to be installed and activated, with the new signals including pedestrian push buttons and meeting all Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.

In mid to late April, the contractor will complete remaining concrete work on sidewalks, and schedule the milling and paving of DeForest Avenue between Maple Street and Norwood Avenue. Striping of traffic lanes and drawing of parking spaces will immediately follow, with crosswalks installed in late May.
