WESTFIELD, NJ — Town Engineer Kris McAloon gave the town council an update on this summer’s road paving program, which is currently underway, during the council’s Tuesday night conference meeting.
Already, the contractor has put in ADA-compliant ramps at all of the intersections and replaced manholes, McAloon told the council.
“So really now all the roads are prepped for the next step — paving,” McAloon said. He told the council that work on all of the roads is expected to be finished in September or October.
“We do have some school-sensitive streets that will be done before school starts,” he said.
At least parts of about 26 roads are being improved this summer as part of the town’s program: Harrison, Cory Place, Raymond Street, Parkview Avenue, Edgewood Avenue, Effingham Place, Ramapo Way, Stanley Avenue, Archbold Place, Arlington Avenue, Cranford Avenue, Sherbrook Drive, Sherman Drive, Oak Avenue, Linden Avenue, Roger Avenue, Grandview Avenue, Pine Grove Avenue, Manchester Drive, Fontana, Reese Place, Byron Court, Summit Court, Shackamaxon Drive, First Street and Shadowlawn Drive.
Work on Boulevard, a separate project paid for by the state, began Tuesday, McAloon told the council. That project, which McAloon called “a full-depth reconstruction,” is expected to be completed before school begins.
Union County is resurfacing Central Avenue.
