Road Resurfacing Program


2023 Road Resurfacing Program

original-68F1D569-70E5-4ABB-82B3-B4527565B376

In the last four years, the Borough of Prospect Park has resurfaced approximately 40 percent of local roadways. The Borough evaluates the condition of the road system on an annual basis as part of its ongoing road maintenance program. This evaluation program is a collaborative effort between the engineering and public works departments. The program takes into account the perspectives of both departments and synthesizes the input received into a comprehensive annual evaluation of the Borough's road system.

The 2023 Road Resurfacing Program is officially underway and has received grant funding to offset the burden on taxpayers. The funding for this year amasses a total of $2.1 million in grant funding from county and state sources (largest ever), allowing for approximately a record 1.5 miles of roadway maintenance. This year, in response to rising inflation costs coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the municipality has expanded its transportation and infrastructure projects while saving the taxpayers approximately 25% in additional savings over the course of 20 years through a partnership with the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank ("NJ I-Bank") program. This program is funded through the NJ DOT in conjunction with the NJ Dept. of Treasury to allow for towns to participate in state-funded low interest loans instead of relying on the traditional bond market  Below is in alphabetical order a list of the streets included in the program, and the approximate dates major work efforts will be performed. The work includes drainage upgrades plus the replacement of curbs, driveway aprons, sidewalks and wheelchair ramps in Prospect Park.

The roads will typically remain open to local traffic during milling and other preparatory work. However, during the paving operation, the roads will be closed to all traffic starting at 7:00 AM, and are typically re-opened by 5:00 PM. The schedule below is dependent on good weather, and no equipment breakdowns. Unfortunately, this type of work is weather permitting, can experience unexpected equipment failures, and unforeseen site conditions. Please check back from time to time as the schedule will be updated periodically to account for these unpredicted circumstances, and as the project progresses.
