Brick Township officials are seeking state funding to elevate one roadway in town, while the township council has voted to award a contract that will repave and improve a different street.

The council has voted to use state funding to elevate Channel Drive, located in the Shore Acres neighborhood. The street forms a peninsula off Bay View Drive and has been the subject of concerns by residents over flooding in recent years.

The council has determined the street qualifies for grant funding under the state Department of Transportation’s annual municipal aid program, which the governing body unanimously voted to seek at its meeting last week. The annual municipal roadway aid program generally covers one or two projects per year in each town statewide.

There was no specific timeline provided as to when the project may begin, however it will be after the state passes its own annual budget and begins awarding grant funding.

The council also voted to award a contract for re-paving and road improvements to Courtshire Drive, one of the main roadways within the Lions Head North subdivision off Beaverson Boulevard.

A $488,783 contract was awarded to Meco Inc., of Clarksburg, N.J., to perform the work. The project will include milling and paving, plus general improvements to drainage, curbs and driveway aprons where necessary.

Residents will be notified by the township before work begins and given instructions on when or if vehicles need to be removed from the street.
