Over the next few weeks North Bergen will repave certain streets between 76th Street and 92nd Street, from Kennedy Boulevard to Bergenline Avenue.

Many of these streets were damaged by work done by PSE&G and Suez. The township has been waiting to repave them until the utility companies completed their underground work.

At the North Bergen Board of Commissioners meeting on Oct. 21, a resolution was adopted awarding a contract for the 2020 Township Paving Program for $1,065,275.90.

Mayor Nicholas Sacco said he has been very critical of the companies “ripping up the street” instead of “preparing the infrastructure.”

“All the money we put in, and all they do is create street problems for us,” Sacco said.

Repairs

Milling began on Nov. 5. Work is scheduled to continue until Nov. 20. All dates are weather permitting.

Paving will occur on Bergenwood Avenue from 91st Street to just north of 92nd Street.

82nd Street will be repaved from JFK Boulevard to 5th Street, then again from 5th Street to Bergenline Avenue. 85th Street will be repaved from JFK Boulevard to 5th Street, then from 5th Street to 4th Street, followed by 5th Street to Bergenline Avenue.

2nd Avenue will be repaved incrementally from JFK to 85th Street, then 85th Street to 82nd Street, followed by 82nd Street to 80th Street.

3rd Avenue will be repaved from 87th Street to 80th Street. 4th Avenue will be repaved from 89th Street to 88th Street.

5th Avenue will be repaved in increments from 90th to 88th Street, then 88th Street to 79th Street, followed by 79th Street to 76th Street.
