The 2016 Road Improvement Program
Mayor DeSalvo and the borough council want to make residents aware that the preliminary site work for the 2016 road improvement project has begun and milling and paving is scheduled to begin next week on or about October 17th. The timing of the borough road project allowed the governing body to take advantage of competitive asphalt pricing. The good news for Rutherford taxpayers and residents is that the borough benefits by maximizing the linear feet of road paving including especially wide streets like Carmita Avenue and Orient Way.
Additionally, the recent uncertainty with the NJ Transportation Trust Fund helped increased contractor availability creating further savings. Grant funding is also being utilized for sidewalk improvements on Orient Way from Glen Road to Passaic Avenue.
The following streets are scheduled to be paved:
Orient Way from Highland Cross to East Passaic
East Van Ness Avenue from Delafield Avenue to Lincoln Avenue
West Newell Avenue from Mortimer Avenue to Park Avenue
West Park Avenue from Mortimer Avenue to Park Avenue
Wheaton Place from Addison Avenue to Marginal Road
Lincoln Avenue from East Pierrepont Avenue to East Park Place
Washington Avenue from Raymond Avenue to Wood Street
Grove Street from Union Avenue to West Erie
Carmita Avenue from Woodward Avenue to Union Avenue
Santiago from Union to Fransico
