Employees of Asphalt Paving Systems will begin micro-surfacing several streets in Chatham Borough Monday as part of the borough's 2012 Road Management Program.
Eleven borough streets will receive a thin top layer of aspalt emulsion to help seal cracks and prevent moisture from penetrating the base of the roads. This microsurfacing process helps protect the longevity of the roads.
While streets are being treated and the emulsion dries, no on-street parking will be permitted. The advises residents to park on adjacent streets.
Work will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and, weather permitting, will be complete by Wednesday afternoon.
The streets that will receive an additional layer of micro-surfacing are:
- Coleman Avenue, from Weston Avenue to Jackson Avenue
- Dellwood Avenue, from Fairview Avenue to the Chatham Township border
- Edgewood Avenue, from Lafayette Avenue to the Chatham Township border
- Harding Street: the entire length
- Jackson Avenue: the entire length
- Milton Avenue: the entire length
- Rose Terrace: Woodland Avenue to the border with Chatham Township
- Taft Street: the entire length
- University Avenue: the entire length
- Weston Avenue: From North Passaic Avenue to Hedges Avenue
- Yale Street: From North Passaic Avenue to Center Avenue
According to Robert Venezia, the director of the borough’s Department of Public Works, residents of these streets have received notification that the work will be performed.
