Work has begun on improvements to several asphalt paths, including repairs and widening, in Princeton’s first pathway project in several years.
Black Rock Enterprises LLC was awarded a contract for $264,256 last month by the Princeton Council for the project. The Old Bridge contractor was one of seven contractors that submitted bids for the job, and was deemed to be the lowest responsible and responsive bidder.
Bids ranged from Black Rock Enterprises LLC’s low bid of $264,256 to S. Brothers General Contractors’ high bid of $438,694. The municipal engineer had estimated the project to cost $408,159.
Among the paths included in the project is the Johnson Trolley right-of-way from Elm Road to the Johnson Park School. The path will be repaved, maintaining its eight-foot width.
The path along Mountain Avenue, between The Great Road and Quarry Lane, will be widened from approximately five feet to six feet in width to between eight feet and 10 feet in width.
Macomb Road in the Campbell Woods development, off Mount Lucas Road, will be repaved.
Finally, cracks will be filled in the asphalt path on Cherry Hill Road, between Route 206 and Foulet Drive.
Black Rock Enterprises LLC has 45 days to complete the project.
