Brick officials have announced two forthcoming projects in town that will improve residents’ streets – one focusing on drainage and one on milling and paving.
First, the township council awarded a $506,313 contract to Earle Asphalt for the repaving of a neighborhood in the northern portion of the township. The project will include milling and roadway resurfacing on S. Lake Drive, W. Lake Drive, Beth Avenue, Kelly Avenue and Rose Avenue. All of the streets are located off Maple Avenue in the Herbertsville section.
The township sent bid notices to 74 contractors, and three responded. The low bid was awarded. The work will likely take place in the spring since asphalt plants seasonally close in New Jersey during periods of cold weather.
Next, the council voted to solicit bids for drainage improvement project. The project calls for storm drain pipe reconstruction and other drainage improvements on Oregon Avenue, also in the Herbertsville section.
