[ARCHIVED] Berkeley Ave. Curb and Road Repair Project to be Completed Next Week

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Repair work to Berkeley Ave. between Franklin St. and Montgomery St. which began in September is nearly complete.

The initial concrete work was completed this week, and milling is expected to be completed Wednesday, November 13, weather permitting. The entire section of Franklin St. to Montgomery St. is expected to be finished on or around Thursday, November 14, weather permitting.

Repair work for this project included curb replacements along both sides of the street, after which the contractors will begin milling and paving. Milling involves removing up to two inches of the pavement, so when crews pave over it with new asphalt, the road stays flat. In addition to paving and curbing, compliant ADA handicap ramps will be provided at all intersections and enhanced pavement striping to promote traffic calming. This project is being funded by a $491,000 grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

“I am excited to report that this project will be completed on time and on budget, and before winter weather sets in,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “I would like to thank all parties involved in this project, and Berkeley Ave. residents for their patience while we work on this important project.”

Working hours are 7:00am-6:00pm and the street will be posted “No Parking.” Residents of Berkeley Ave. will have full access to their driveways during non-working hours and will have to make arrangements to move cars off the street prior to the 7:00am start time.

For more information about this project, or other roadwork, residents are invited to call the Township Engineer’s office at 973-680-4009.
