Project Description and Schedule:

The project includes the replacement of a culvert on Townline Road over a tributary to the Hackensack River at the intersection of Hartshorn Lane.  The new culvert will be more durable and corrosion resistant and will improve the hydraulic characteristics of the existing culvert.  The project will also include new pavement within the project limits, drainage improvements and the installation of proper guide rail protection.

The culvert on Hungry Hollow Road to be replaced is located between Raymond Avenue and Sparrow Lane and carries the roadway over a tributary of the Saddle River.  In addition to the culvert replacement, the roadway will be repaved within the project limits and the sidewalk along the roadway will be replaced with new ADA compliant sidewalk and supported by the construction of a new concrete retaining wall with new protective guide rail.

The Bridge Rehabilitation Project on the Call Hollow Road Bridge over the Minisceongo Creek will include repairs to the concrete and steel of the existing structure and replacement of waterproofing between the culvert and roadway pavement.  A concrete retaining wall will be constructed along the Minisceongo Creek to protect the roadway from erosion and new guide rail will be installed to protect the traveling public.

It is anticipated that construction will begin in the Spring of 2021 and should be complete by the end of 2021.
