WEST ORANGE, NJ Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. has announced that the 2015 Essex County Roadway Resurfacing Program has begun. It is part of the DiVincenzo Administration’s initiative to enhance safety on the roads and the quality of life by modernizing infrastructure,

“Essex residents and motorists rely on our intricate network of roads to get to work, go to school and carry out their daily errands,” he said. “My administration is committed to making sure our infrastructure is in the most modern condition so that our daily lives are not interrupted. We apologize for any inconvenience the construction may cause, but the end result will improve our quality of life by making it easier and safer to travel through Essex County.”

The program was funded through a $5 million grant from the Annual Transportation Program.

Roads that are being repaved through this program include the following:

  • Verona/West Orange: Lakeside Avenue/Pleasant Valley Way from Bloomfield Avenue Eagle Rock Avenue
  • Fairfield: Fairfield Road from Route 46 to Passaic Avenue
  • West Orange: Pleasant Valley Way from Eagle Rock Avenue to Mt. Pleasant Avenue/Route 10
  • Livingston: Walnut Street from Eisenhower Parkway to South Orange Avenue
  • Irvington: Springfield Avenue from Becker Terrace to South 20th Street
  • South Orange: Wyoming Avenue from Luddington Road to South Orange Avenue

The construction includes milling the old pavement from the road. Repairs and upgrades to the manhole covers and basins will follow and then the road will be resurfaced with new pavement. The improvements will take about two weeks to complete, weather permitting.

In addition, Essex County used a $1.5 million grant from the Community Development Block Grant program and the Essex County Capital Budget to resurface the following roads:

  • Nutley: Centre Street from St. Mary’s Place to Washington Avenue
  • Nutley/Belleville: Union Avenue from Centre Street to Greylock Parkway
  • Orange: High Street from Washington Street to Main Street
  • Orange: Main Street from Valley Road/Northfield Avenue to High Street
  • Belleville: Belleville Avenue from Washington Street to the Bloomfield border

The project includes milling the old surface off the road, repairing broken curbing, improving handicapped ramps and crosswalk areas at intersections, laying new pavement and painting striping on the new surface.

Smith Sondy Asphalt Construction Co. from Wallington was awarded a competitively bid contract for $6.6 million to perform the road work. The project is being supervised by the Essex County Department of Public Works.
