Work will soon begin on the improvements to Jackson, Madison, Polk and Adams (north-south streets) between 58th and 71st streets from Bergenline Avenue to Kennedy Boulevard, according to Mayor Gerald Drasheff.
“We want to get this done before the winter hits,” said Town Clerk Alberto Cabrera on Thursday, Aug. 22. “So sometime in September we’ll be starting.”
Movement on the project was kept going by a special Town Council meeting called on Aug. 12 at which a resolution was passed awarding the $747,260 contract to Reggio Construction Inc. of Fort Lee, according to Drasheff and Cabrera.
“They’ll replace sidewalks as needed,” the mayor said. “It’ll probably be 70 to 75 percent in that area.”
Street paving will also be done on 68th Street, from about Hudson Avenue to Boulevard East, according to Drasheff. -- Joseph Passantino
