Green Ave Reconstruction Notice

October 01, 2013

Green Ave Reconstruction is scheduled to begin by October 1st by General Contractor Cifelli and Son as a result of public bidding this past summer.

The Green Ave Improvements (Shunpike to Woodland) include state funding participation. A pavement mill and overlay will be completed with improved drainage, curb, sidewalk, signage and striping for the entire length. The improvements are permanent and the inconvenience will be temporary. The program has been the subject of multiple public hearings and the construction contract documents are available in the office of the Borough Engineer for review during regular business hours, or on the municipal website, should additional information be desired.

Affected residents may expect separate contacts from the General Contractor during the course of the project and he will coordinate with residents in the immediate vicinity of work to minimize inconvenience. Your cooperation is requested during the time of construction to relocate the vehicles you intend to use on days in which the contractor is active in your immediate vicinity. This will minimize interruption of construction work, avoid limiting your entry/exit on certain days and allow the contractor to finish as soon as possible. Parking restrictions will be enforced by the Police Department during construction if vehicles impede construction progress. Pedestrians will be encouraged to reroute clear of the construction zone and sections of road may be closed to preserve safety for the public. Overnight parking enforcement may be waived by the Police Department in areas where driveway access is temporarily blocked (we anticipate affected driveway access restored within several days).

Specific advance construction or scheduling problems may be directed to the office of the Borough Engineer. The Police Department can be contacted for traffic information and assistance. Finally, improving your infrastructure is important to the Borough.
