Once milling has been completed, please use caution while driving or walking in these areas as the manholes will be raised.

PAVING –The roadway will remain closed to traffic for a short time after paving while the asphalt cools. No vehicles will be permitted on the roadway until the barricades are removed.

Police officers will be directing traffic during the milling and paving operations.

If there is a problem and the Township inspector is not on-site we ask that you do not approach the contractor but immediately call the Department of Community Services at 973-509-5711. The inspector will contact you by phone within a short time.

Every effort will be made to minimize inconvenience however this project will cause a disruption of normal routines and schedules.

  1. Mill every street and then get around to the paving at some point. Id rather have a consistent yet manageable rattle than a chassis destroying crater. Automakers should test for ride comfort on some of our streets.
