Brick Township officials have approved a project in partnership with the Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority that will replace undersized water mains on a number of streets in town, with road repaving coming after the replacements have been completed. The township council also voted to solicit bids for two separate paving projects.
Water Mains, Smooth Streets
The council last week awarded a $629,149 contract to ANAR Construction, of South River, N.J., to complete the joint township-MUA project in the Laurel Manor neighborhood, located off Princeton Avenue.
“The BTMUA will reimburse the township for their portion of the work, which is estimated to be $371,561,” said Councilman Derrick T. Ambrosino.
According to the MUA, undersized water mains are being replaced on Freedom Road, Robertson Court and Laurman Avenue for a total replacement of about 1,500 linear feet of piping. After the mains are installed, the overall improvement project will get underway, including roadway milling and resurfacing, full-depth pavement restoration, drainage improvements, and the retrofitting of manhole frames, inlet grates, curb pieces and bicycle safety grates.
New Paving Planned
The council voted to solicit bids for two of the township’s regular road improvement projects.
The first project includes the Cherie Manor neighborhood, located off Burrsville Road. This includes the repaving of Lisa Drive, Princess Avenue and Maria Court.
The second project includes the repaving of Emerson Street, roughly located off Van Zile Road.
For all of the projects, residents will be notified when contractors have scheduled the work and will send notices beforehand.
