Union County Announces 2010 Resurfacing Projects

Union County Freeholder Chairman Daniel P. Sullivan announced today the County will resurface 12 miles of roadway as part of a $5.6 million New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) funded project.

The project, which will begin in the May, will include county roads in Elizabeth, Roselle, Clark, Rahway, Springfield, Union Township, Scotch Plains and Plainfield.

This project, together with one previously approved and paid for with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) puts the total miles of roadway slated to be paved in 2010 at thirty-six, which is triple the normal amount done each year.

"Keeping our roads in top condition ensures our residents and those traveling through our area a safe and enjoyable driving experience," said Chairman Sullivan. "Residents from one end of the county to the other will benefit from this aggressive effort."

The following roadways will be resurfaced as part of the NJDOT project:

· Summit Avenue in Summit, from Springfield Avenue to Route 124.

· South Springfield Avenue in Springfield, from Mountain Avenue to Meisel Avenue.

· Mountain Avenue in Springfield, from Hillside Avenue to 660 feet North of Sheffield Street.

· Brant Avenue in Clark, from GSP 135 Circle to Westfield Avenue.
