Road Improvement Project Updates Road Work_Blank

A quick update on Road Improvement Projects throughout the Borough that have taken place this summer, so far:

2018 Mill and Overlay Resurfacing as well as curb replacements has been completed on three roads, Barnsdale Road, Keep Street and Winding Way. Kings Road was completed between Madison Avenue and Green Village Road (paid for by the Green Village Road developer). The remainder of Kings Road yet to be milled and paved (Green Village Road to Prospect Street) will be completed in the coming months.

2018 Road Reconstruction projects have been ongoing throughout the Borough. At this point, Crestwood Drive, Kensington Road and Rosewood Drive have been completed and will be milled and paved beginning on July 31st (weather permitting). The paving work on Greenwood Avenue has been put on hold by the Borough until PSE&G is completed with the required gas main and service replacement infrastructure work, which is progressing from Main Street north towards Interstate 24. This work is scheduled to last approx. one more month. As soon as the work is completed, the Borough will be following behind and paving the entire length of Greenwood Avenue from curb-to-curb.

PSE&G has completed necessary gas pipe replacement to ensure the continued safety and reliability of the gas services on Crestview Avenue, Lawrence Road, Lewis Drive and Stonegate Court. They plan to start milling at the end of the week and pave early next week (weather dependent).

Milling and paving of Main Street and Madison Avenue due to the PSE&G gas main upgrades has been completed.

Elmer Street sewer improvement project has been completed. PSE&G has come in after the Borough has finished their part, and is now replacing and upgrading the gas main and lines. Sanitary lines will be installed and Elmer Street will be paved in the next 6-8 weeks.

Central Avenue sidewalks have been completed, as well as new water mains from Ridgedale Avenue and Walnut Street. PSE&G has just begun work on replacing and upgrading the deteriorating gas main and lines on Central Avenue. As soon as they are finished with the necessary repairs, Morris County will come through and complete their required work, which consists of catch basins curbing and handicap ramps before they complete an entire paving job of Central Avenue, curb-to-curb, from Ridgedale Avenue to Main Street. This work is intended to be finished in the next two months.

Plain Street reconstruction will begin around August 2nd and will entail an installation of a new water main, followed by the reconstruction (curbing, drainage, paving) of Plain Street. This construction will take approx. 8 weeks.

In addition to road improvements, new sidewalks were installed on Hamilton Street and in the coming weeks will be installed on Ferndale Road, Forest Road, Alexander Ave, Woodland Road (Loantaka Way to Green Avenue) and Page Street.

A full report on all the road improvement projects throughout the Borough will be presented at the August 13th Borough Council Meeting, which takes place at 8:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers at Hartley Dodge Memorial.

*Paving of Kensington by Cifelli is scheduled for tomorrow, August 8th beginning at 7AM. Residents are urged to park on Kings Road tonight. Overnight parking will NOT be enforced on Kings Road or the surrounding streets.

All paving will be completed by Cifelli, who is under contract with the Borough of Madison. Paving schedules are tentative and are subject to changes.

Cifelli & Son Contracting (973-235-0302) and the milling / paving subcontractors working for the Borough of Madison to complete the resurfacing of local roads, intend to begin milling operations Tuesday July 31st (several days) and initiate paving operations within 72 hours thereafter, weather conditions permitting. Milling operations may restrict local access for an hour in the direct vicinity of work and will be phased to minimize access limitations for the public. Paving operations can restrict access for up to one full work day thus requiring car/truck access alternatives.

On paving days, your cooperation is requested to restrict or relocate vehicles you need to use between 8am and 3:30pm when the contractor is active on the street. This will minimize interruption of construction work and allow the contractor to finish as soon as possible. Temporary Parking on a local street within 1000 feet of work may be anticipated with the cooperation of the Police, who will be available for information and assistance at roadway entrance locations.

Emergency “NO PARKING” will be enforced by the Police Department during construction if vehicles impede construction progress. Specific scheduling or technical problems may be directed to the office of the Borough Engineer (593-3060). The Police Department (593-3000) can be contacted for traffic information and assistance (let them know your plate number and vehicle location if parking on adjoining street).

Crestwood, Rosewood & Kensington residents: Please place your trash/recycling/yard waste out the night before scheduled pick-up through this Friday 8/3 as our hauler will be by earlier than normal for collection due to the scheduled milling and paving.
