South Orange selected to receive funding from State

NJ seal

NJDOT's Municipal Aid Program has chosen SO to receive funding for Grove Road Improvements.

You can find the letter from the State here.

The purpose of the proposed project is to improve the drainage, aesthetics, and driveability of the roadway while decreasing maintenance issues.

The Village proposes to replace the existing concrete curb with new granite block curbing. The existing curbs are no longer uniform or maintained as they have been neglected for many years.

In addition, the roadway requires resurfacing. The surface course of the road consists of no more than two inches of asphalt above an asphalt paver subsurface. The surface course is cracked and spalling. There are also areas with large potholes. 

As a result of replacing the existing asphalt surface with a two-inch surface course lined with granite block curbing, the Village can create a new driving surface while maintaining the historic nature of the area for many years to come.

Information on this project has been supplied by the Engineering Department.
