Brick Township has awarded a $455,144 contract for the repaving and minor improvements to the drainage system on several streets in the Lakewood Gardens neighborhood.
The neighborhood, located between Burrsville Road and Route 88, will be repaved by Lucas Brother Construction, of Morganville.
The streets to be paved include: Leah Court, Crawford Avenue, Green Grove Road, Jay Avenue, Jacqueline Avenue and Bradley Avenue.
Bids for construction were well under an engineer’s estimate, Ducey said, thanks to work stoppages on state roads since projects funded through the Transportation Trust Fund have been halted due to an impasse over a gas tax increase.
“These guys have employees who they want to keep employed,” said Ducey. “Hopefully we’ll keep on getting these great prices.”
