Re: Tichenor Avenue Road Improvements

This notice is to you to inform you of the curb, sidewalk & drainage work that is planned to start the week of September 24th, 2018

The work will be from 7 am to 4 pm and is planned to take 2 months, weather permitting.

You may notice yellow, blue, green and/ or red spray paint markings in the road and sidewalk area. They are to help locate the respective underground utilities in the area.

Also, during this time, your driveway access will be limited. Although this can be an inconvenience, we will try to minimize this disruption. During this construction period, cars will not be allowed to be parked on the road. You may park in your driveway overnight, but we recommend you relocate them to a side street prior to the start of work if you plan on driving that day.

You will only have to move your car out of your driveway when your driveway apron is being repaired. The Contractor will let you know the day before. It should only take 2-3 days.

If you need to park overnight on the roadway, please contact the South Orange Police Department at 973-763-3000 or the Parking Authority at 973-378-7715 x 2037 and inform them that there is roadwork on your street.

If you have a sprinkler system near the curb and sidewalk area, please locate them for the Contractor. The Village and Contractor will not be responsible for damages. If damages do occur, please notify me.

Please do not approach or attempt to discuss the project with individual workers as they do not have the authority to make changes to the project scope or perform additional work. 

Any disturbed areas as a result of the work being performed will be top soiled and seeded.

If you have questions regarding road closures or specific construction issues, please contact:
