Bayonne’s 2014 street-paving program will start on or about Monday, September 22, weather permitting.
Mayor Davis said, “The City of Bayonne has included various streets throughout the community in the 2014 paving program. This year, we are resurfacing portions of Avenue B and Broadway, as well as various side streets that have needed repair.”
The following streets will be resurfaced: Avenue B (from 36th Street to 42nd Street); Newark Bay Court; Court Place; Cottage Street (between Hobart Avenue and Broadway); and Broadway (between Dodge Street and Evergreen Street). Before being resurfaced, the street on Newark Bay Court will undergo a full reconstruction.
The $729,000 paving program is financed by a combination of funding from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and the City of Bayonne. The paving contractor is Top Line Construction of Somerville, New Jersey.
Signs will be posted in advance of work to give residents notice of the paving program’s impact on traffic and parking. The contractor will begin with concrete work, which will include new handicapped ramps where needed. Then crews will mill and remove the existing street surface. Following that, each street will be repaved. Striping, which involves painting new lines on the resurfaced streets, will be the last step. Work schedules for each street are subject to change, due to the weather and construction problems that may occur.
Anyone with questions or concerns about the paving project can contact Public Works Director Gary Chmielewski at 201-858-6070.
Mayor Davis concluded, “We appreciate the residents’ patience as the paving program starts. Following some temporary inconvenience, each neighborhood will benefit from improved streets.”
