This is a press release from Bloomfield Township. Press releases are official statements that have not been independently verified.

Bloomfield is continuing to make infrastructure improvements in town with work to begin on Glenwood Ave. this Thursday. The work will take approximately two days to complete and will include all of Glenwood Ave. from the East Orange border to Lackawanna Place.

“As part of our commitment to making infrastructure improvements in town and planning for the future, we will be paving Glenwood Ave. at the end of this week,” said Mayor Venezia. “While this work is being done, we will make every effort to minimize the disruption to residents and that is why we are informing impacted residents before work begins.”

All side streets off Glenwood Ave. will be available for residents to park tomorrow and Friday. The traffic pattern will shift to one-lane traffic with possible intermittent periods of no thru traffic. Motorists are encouraged to find an alternate route over the next two days.

The township is asking residents that live in the affected area to remove their cars from the street by 7am on Thursday to ensure that paving can move forward efficiently. If weather or equipment trouble does not allow for the project to begin on Thursday, the project will begin on the next business day.

“We are constantly monitoring roads and other infrastructure in town that may need repair and we have determined that Glenwood Ave. should be paved before the summer,” said Township Engineer Paul Lasek. “The Mayor and Council have made tremendous investments in infrastructure in town over the last several years including in water lines, roads and bridges and have committed to continuing to do so.”

The township and the Contractor, D&L Paving Contractors, Inc. will make every effort to minimize inconvenience during construction. CME Associates, representing Bloomfield Township, will have a representative in the area while the work takes place. If a resident has any questions or comments, they may approach this representative or contact Mr. Paulo Benatti of CME Associates at 732-727-8000.
