East Windsor Township officials expect the roadway improvements to Oak Creek Road to be completed by the end of the month, according to Mayor Janice Mironov.
Improvements to Oak Creek Road between Hickory Corner Road and Oak Creek Circle began in mid-August. Last summer, the township had done work on Oak Creek Road between Dutch Neck Road and Hickory Corner Road.
The roadway improvements, performed by low bidder Barrett Paving Company, include milling and resurfacing, as well as repairs to curbs, driveway aprons and handicapped ramps.
The work began with concrete repairs to curbs, driveway aprons and handicap ramps, which were completed on Sept. 9. Repairs to storm drains and pipes were expected to be completed the week of Sept. 12, after which the contractor is expected to complete the restoration of topsoil and seeding.
Milling and resurfacing should begin on or about Monday, Sept. 19, weather permitting, and final paving of the entire road is anticipated to take place and be completed the week of Sept. 26, weather permitting. Residents living on the roadway will be notified prior to the start of th pavement work.
East Windsor also is performing roadway improvements to Dutch Neck Road between Oak Creek Road and One Mile Road. The improvements, performed by Barrett Paving Company who was also low bidder on this project, include milling and resurfacing, as well as repairs to curbs, driveway aprons and handicapped ramps. Concrete work repairs to curbs, driveway aprons and handicapped ramps started Sept. 14, to be followed by repairs to storm drains and pipes.
Based on this schedule and the weather, the township anticipates that final paving work will occur the first week of October.
