ROAD CONSTRUCTION NOTICE – MARCH 10, 2022
The return of Road Construction Notices is a sure sign that spring is near. Weather permitting, spring road work is anticipated to begin the third week of March. Prior Road Construction Notices can be reviewed HERE.
Spring also brings with it potholes. As the weather warms and the asphalt freezes and thaws, pothole season comes to the northeast. We invite residents who drive our roads every day to quickly and easily report potholes on our Pothole Portal.
MARLBORO POTHOLE PORTAL. Entering the complaint directly allows for an even more efficient response. The Pothole Portal is a part of our SDL system and you need register only one time to access our many on-line services. The link to the Pothole Portal can be found on the ‘Quick Links & Actions’ section of the Township throughout the year and linked HERE.
Many roads in Marlboro are under state or county jurisdiction. State Roads can be reported using the online form HERE or call 1-800-POTHOLE. Monmouth County Roads can be reported to 732-431-6550.
UPCOMING – FUNDED IN PART BY NJDOT GRANT
Ryan Road - Mayor Jon Hornik and the Township Council are pleased to announce that Marlboro has been selected to receive funding from the NJ DOT Municipal Aid Program for the Ryan Road improvement project in the amount of $251,900. More to follow.
Union Hill Road: The Township will be repaving Union Hill Road between Clayton Road and the Manalapan border utilizing a $205,000 grant received from the State Department of Transportation. This work includes removal and replacement of deteriorated concrete curb and concrete curb and gutter, modifications to the intersection of Hawkins Road to improve the pedestrian crossing, upgrade of all curb ramps to meet ADA regulations, and the milling and resurfacing of the entire roadway surface. Contingent upon funding, the project is anticipated to be bid in the spring with construction commencing in the summer of 2022.
Wyncrest Road: The Township will be repaving Wyncrest Road between Robertsville Road and Route 18 utilizing a $215,000 grant received from the State Department of Transportation. This work is being coordinated with water system improvements at the intersection of Robertsville Road, Wyncrest Road and Brookside Circle. Once the water main project is complete, Wyncrest Road and Brookside circle will be resurfaced along the project limits along with upgrades to the ADA curb ramps. The water main work was awarded in the fall of 2021 with construction to begin in the spring of 2022. Resurfacing of the roadway is scheduled to commence in the fall of 2022.
PARK AND RECREATION
Recreation Center Parking Lot - Beginning Monday 3/14 the Recreation Center lower parking lot will have new curbing installed. The perimeter of the parking lot will be inaccessible during construction. Additional concrete and drainage work will follow in the coming weeks.
H&L Fields - The fields remain open as electrical work is underway. Later this spring, a new walkway and stairs between the two fields will be installed.
Municipal Complex - New exercise equipment will be placed along the municipal park walking path and the basketball court will be color coated and lined.
Nolan Road Park improvements continue as a part of the $200,000 open space grant. The drainage improvements have been completed. The softball field has a new backstop and fencing is scheduled for completion this week. As the weather warms, look for infield grading.
