Road Work

Public Works - 7/10/2017 11:38:32 AM

On or about Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 road work will begin on Chestnut Lane, Wootton Road (between Oak and Roseland) and Rensselaer Road (between Hawthorne and Hillside).

This work is being made possible through a Grant received from the State of New Jersey.

Work on these roads is expected to take two weeks.

During the last four days of the project the contractor will be milling and paving the road-way.

Residents living on Chestnut, Maple, Wootton, and Rensselaer should expect limited access to their homes during milling and paving operations.

No parking will be allowed on the streets during the resurfacing project.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
