In June 2019, work on the Washington Avenue – Section 1 Road Improvement Project began. The project limits extend from McDonald Street past the Union Forge Park to the bridge over the South Branch. The proposed improvements include removing and replacing curbs and sidewalks, installing select drainage improvements, and reconstructing and resurfacing the roadway. Construction will be taking place Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and the project is anticipated to last approximately 6 weeks.
During construction, there will be the usual nuisance related instances of road detours, delays, noise from equipment, etc. As with all construction projects, we urge residents to proceed with caution in areas of construction. The Borough and its contractor will make every effort to keep these interruptions to a minimum and complete this project as quickly as possible.
Please contact Borough Hall at 908-638-6455 if you have any questions.
