Township Schools Not Affected By Construction on Burlington Rd.
Construction on Burlington Rd. will go through mid-June. Residents should expect minor delays.
Burlington Rd. in Freehold Township, from Kozloski Rd. to Maher Rd., is getting a facelift.
Starting this week and working through mid-June, Earle Asphalt will be making improvements including upgrading drainage inlet structures, new A.D.A. ramps, curbs, asphalt milling, repair old settled or broken areas of the pavement and the installation of a surface course of asphalt over the entire project limits.
According to the Freehold Township Engineering Department, the students and schools in the surrounding area have been taken into consideration for the entire scheduling for this project.
“The Board of Education is working with Earle Asphalt to make sure there is no disruption of the bus service,” said Sims. “Brian Boyle, the business administrator, and Joan Burroughs, the transportation coordinator for the district, are in contact with the company.”
Simms said the work started on April 2 with the school schedule factored in. “The concrete needs time to cure so they actually did it while the school was closed for spring break,” said Sims.
The work will take about a month and will be paid for with the help of money from state aid.
“We have received $275,000 from the state municipal aid program to offset the cost of the road work on Burlington Rd.,” said Sims.
Residents should expect minor delays. There are vehicle message boards advising residents in the area of the work that is going to be done, but if you have any questions or concerns, the engineering department can be reached at (732) 294-2070.
