Program to Overlay 17.2 Miles Along 12 Roads in 13 Towns
The Burlington County Freeholders approved a $7.1 million Annual Road Resurfacing Program plan for the overlay of 12 County roads in 13 municipalities for a total of 17.2 miles.
The County is funding the project with $4,532,000 from the annual NJ Transportation Trust Fund. The remaining $2.6M will be funded by the County.
“We will continue to dedicate the state funds we receive to the essential maintenance of our County roads that are in the most need of repaving,’’ said Burlington County Freeholder Director Joe Donnelly. “This repaving plan has proved to be far less costly than major reconstruction of roads if they are left in disrepair.”
The County will receive the NJ Transportation Trust Funding upfront as it is one of only a few counties in the State that have spent previous year funds in the time required.
Utility companies and the 13 municipalities in which construction will be scheduled will be notified to avoid conflicting with any other road construction projects. The plan now will be submitted to NJ Department of Transportation for its approval.
Roads are selected to be resurfaced based on the engineers’ evaluation of road surface conditions. County roads scheduled to be resurfaced in 2013 include:
