RAHWAY – Mayor James Kennedy announced today that nine Rahway streets will be resurfaced later this year as part of the city’s annual resurfacing project.


On February 13 the City Council approved an ordinance on first reading that would issue $650,000 in bonds to fund the resurfacing project.  A contractor and work schedule will be published on the City’s web site this summer.


The streets that will be resurfaced this summer and fall are:

West Lincoln Ave. between Whittier and Allen Sts.

Linden Ave. between Whittier and Church Sts.

Robert St. between Berthold and Russell Aves.

Bryant St. between Inman Ave. and Walters St.

Williams St. between New Brunswick Ave. and Main St.

East Emerson Ave. between Broad and Fulton Sts.

Broad St. between W. Milton and Maple Aves.

Broad St. between Maple and W. Hazelwood Aves.

Maple Ave. between Bryant St. and Jaques Ave.


A portion of the project costs will be absorbed by a Community Development Block Grant and $135,000 in funding from the New Jersey Department of Transportation.   This year’s road improvement program is a continuation of Mayor Kennedy’s efforts to address the ongoing infrastructure needs of the community.


Parking will be restricted on the above streets during resurfacing, and motorists are asked to use extra caution when traveling through the area.  The streets will be milled and topped with two inches of new asphalt.  Curb repairs will be made where necessary.


Residents may call the Department of Building, Planning & Economic Development with any construction-related questions at (732) 827-2180.
