Green Ave Milling & Paving

Cifelli & Son Construction, the General Contractor retained by the Borough of Madison to complete the resurfacing of Green Avenue, intends to begin milling operations on Thursday November 21, 2013 (two days) and paving operations the following Monday (two days), weather conditions permitting.
