WESTFIELD, NJ — The town has approved funds for paving 5.5 miles of roadways — resurfacing that officials said will be supplemented with 12.4 miles of road paving to be conducted by utility companies.

The municipality requires utilities to pave the full width of roads when they dig into them for their improvements.

On April 6, the town council approved borrowing $2.65 million for capital improvements this year, including $1.7 million to fund the road paving, under the bond ordinance.

Recently, the town posted on its website the below list of roads to be paved this year along with an assessment of the roads' pavement condition index, or PCI, based on a study the town had commissioned in 2020. The lower the score the worse the roadway is.

Officials said that in the interest of efficiency, the worst roads may not be paved first as workers focus on sections of the municipality.

“You’re getting grids of the town done at once,” said Town Administrator Jim Gildea. “So, you don’t have to go back there every year, or go back there every other year, and have equipment go over pavement that was just done the year before.”

The following is the paving work to be performed by the municipality in 2021, according to the town.
