The Township of North Brunswick’s 2020 Road Program will launch next month and includes nearly $5 million in street and utility improvements to eight municipal roadways.
The schedule, which is weather dependent, includes a series of improvements from now through next spring, according to information provided by Director of Community Development Michael Hritz.
This year’s largest projects will be the reconstruction of both Raider Road and Roosevelt Avenue, along with the extension roadway adjacent to Veterans Park, according to the statement. Together, this work will accomplish new roadways from Route 130 through the high school, and down through the park and Judd School to Taylor Place. Roosevelt Avenue will be completely reconstructed, along with storm and water improvements, new curbing and sidewalks. New designated bikeways from Route 130 to the park will be part of the design.
Bikeways will also be introduced to all of Hartland Commons as part of a first phase paving of the roadway between Cozzens Lane and Pembrook Avenue. Remaining sections of Hartland Commons will be paved in subsequent years.
Residents using Ruth Road/Harold Street/Lincoln Place, Thomas Avenue from Route 1 to the Indian Head Development, and Quail Mews will see their entire streets base repaired, milled, and paved along with spot curb replacement. Fox Meadow Road will also be completely reconstructed, along with storm improvements, new curbing and sidewalks, according to the statement.
A portion of Chrome Street, between Second Avenue and Allgair Avenue, will also see much needed water main and sanitary sewer improvements before that section of roadway is repaired.
The mayor and Township Council have been steadfastly budgeting more than $4 million per year to maintain and improve the municipal road and utility system, according to the statement. Since 2001, the township has spent more than $51.5 million repairing more than 135 municipal roads and the associated utility infrastructure covering almost 36.8 miles.
