Maplewood Village Construction Update
 
As a result of the unforeseen recent state of emergency, construction in the Village relating to the first phase of the sidewalk improvement project will come to an end on Monday, November 19, 2018.  Crews will be out from 9:00am to 2:00pm.  Work will be contained to the NJ Transit lot island.  There will be no road closures during this time.  Full access to parking in the NJ Transit lot is expected to be available after 2 pm.  All equipment, staging material, and construction debris will be cleared by contractors.
 
This schedule change has been made to ensure public safety in light of impeding weather conditions.
 
If you have questions or concerns about the project, contact the Maplewood Business Administrator, Sonia Alves-Viveiros, at (973) 762-8120, ext. 2000,

Maplewood Avenue Paver Project Update
 
If you have seen the paving project work on Maplewood Avenue, we hope you agree it looks fabulous!  Here’s a quick update on what to expect next week:
 
Work at the intersection of Durand Road should be completed by Tuesday.   
 
On Highland Avenue, the curbing bump out will be constructed starting Monday or Tuesday.  The southbound lane of Maplewood Avenue MAY have to be closed during curb installation.  The concrete base will be poured at Highland Avenue the middle of the week, and finally the pavers will be installed by the end of the week.
 
The intersection of Baker Street along the Belmont building will resume Tuesday or Wednesday and be finished by Friday.
 
At the same time, and if all goes well, the work at the intersection of Lenox Avenue and the curb island adjacent to the NJT lot along Maplewood Avenue may also be in the works. 
 
The Township’s Engineering Department reports that the work is being done extremely well and quickly.  We hope that those of you who have had the opportunity to check out the work like what you see! 
 
The Maplewood Police Department (MPD) will continue to assist in any pedestrian/vehicular detours as needed during the project, which the Township has instructed the contractor must be kept at a minimum.   The MPD will send out alerts regarding street closures and/or detours if they are necessary to ensure public safety.
Remember that the project will be suspended on November 16 until after the New Year to allow for our usual village holiday festivities and shopping period!
The Township is committed to minimizing inconvenience to the public and merchants during this project, and will continue to provide weekly updates on the Township website, email blasts, Twitter and via the Maplewood Construction News Facebook page.
Please note that while the Township makes best efforts to publicize an accurate work schedule, as relayed to us by the contractor, weather and the number of workers assigned to each crew impacts progress.
If you have questions or concerns about the project, contact the Maplewood Business Administrator, Sonia Alves-Viveiros, at (973) 762-8120, ext. 2000, or SViveiros@twp.maplewood.nj.us.

Week of October 29, 2018
Maplewood Avenue Paver Project Update
 
The project is moving along according to schedule, and, as originally planned, Phase One of the new bump outs, curbing and drainage installations should be completed by November 16, clearing the way for the holiday season in the Village!  Phase II, the installation of new brick pavers on the Maplewood Avenue sidewalks, will not resume until the spring 2019.
 
Important Notes!!
 
  1.  There will be no construction this weekend, October 27 and 28th, and Maplewood Avenue and the Village streets perpendicular to it – Durand, Inwood, Highland, Baker and Lenox – will be fully open and accessible to vehicular traffic.
  2.  There will be no construction on October 31, Halloween.  Remember, though, as always, Maplewood Avenue will be closed to traffic between Baker Street and Durand Road to allow for the Halloween parade.
  3. During or shortly after the week of November 5, Maplewood Avenue between Durand Road and Lenox Place will be milled and paved and re-striped.  This is expected to take two to three days, during which time the street will be closed to vehicular traffic, but with the assistance of the MPD, we will insure sidewalk pedestrian access.  We will provide more specific notice as soon as we have the schedule.  Remember, the drive aisle behind the Clarus building will be open and accessible, entering from Baker Street and exiting from Durand Road.  Please note that that every effort will be made to try and have work done during the beginning of the week as to not negatively impact merchants.
Phase I Schedule Going Forward
 
            By the end of today, Friday, 10/26, work at the intersection of Maplewood Avenue and Durand Road should be completed, as well as the work in front of Kings.
 
            On Monday, 10/29, the work will resume at the intersection of Maplewood Avenue and Baker Street.
 
            The MPD and Township Engineering Department have instructed the contractor to remove all outstanding debris from the project site before this weekend, and the Township is making all efforts to insure that work sites are fully safe and secured at the end of each work day.  Additional precautions to increase pedestrian safety will be taken in preparation for the Halloween parade, including additional barricades, cones and construction fencing.
 
The Township will continue to provide weekly updates on the Township website, email blasts, Twitter and via the Maplewood Construction News Facebook page.
If you have questions or concerns about the project, contact the Maplewood Business Administrator, Sonia Alves-Viveiros, at (973) 762-8120, ext. 2000, or SViveiros@twp.maplewood.nj.us.

Maplewood Village Construction Update

Maplewood Avenue Paving Project

Phase one installation of the bump outs on the west side of Maplewood Avenue is continuing at a quick pace!   The drainage improvements at the intersections of Durand, Lenox and Baker should be completed today.  All of next week, the stone and concrete bases for the pavers in the newly-installed bump outs at these intersections will be set.  Secured staging of project-related material and equipment will continue in the parking lot at 60 Woodland Road, resulting in the temporary loss of about 10 parking spots. 

The Maplewood Police Department will continue to assist in any pedestrian/vehicular detours as needed during the project. 

Please keep in mind:  1) There will be no construction or sidewalk/street impediments on Halloween and 2) The project will be suspended on November 16 until after the New Year to allow for our usual village holiday festivities and shopping period!

This is an important civic project that will enhance both the safety and the look of Maplewood Village.  The Township is committed to minimizing inconvenience to the public and merchants during this project, and will continue to provide weekly updates on the Township website, email blasts, Twitter and via the Maplewood Construction News Facebook page.

If you have questions or concerns about the project, contact the Maplewood Business Administrator, Sonia Alves-Viveiros, at (973) 762-8120, ext. 2000, or SViveiros@twp.maplewood.nj.us.


October 8, 2018 - As part of the aesthetic enhancement and safety upgrades to Maplewood Village, the Township will be replacing the existing sidewalk pavers on both sides of Maplewood Avenue and installing traffic-calming bump outs on Maplewood Avenue’s west side. During the course of the project, which will begin on October 1, the Township will advise of any loss of parking spots, and temporary closures of sidewalks and/or vehicular detours. The Maplewood Police Department will have officers assist in pedestrian and vehicular detours as needed.

 
The project schedule (subject to change due to inclement weather):
 
October 1-5 Contractor will install curb bump outs at three intersections of the west side of Maplewood Avenue: at Durand Road, Baker Street, and Lenox Place. The bump outs will increase the sidewalk area and slow vehicular traffic. Sidewalks in these areas will be intermittently partially closed.
 
(Updated) October 8-29 Contractor will install drainage improvements at the edge of the existing curbing and in the area of the newly-installed bump outs. Contractor will install pavers in the newly constructed bump outs.  The road improvements will include the milling and paving of Maplewood Avenue from Durand Road to Lenox Place.
There will be no construction or sidewalk/street impediments on Halloween
 
(Updated) November 16 suspended until April 1, 2019
 
(Updated) April 1, 2019 Remobilize sidewalk construction.  The work will begin on the north end of Maplewood Avenue, in discrete blocks, starting at Durand Road, east to Woodland Road, and continue in this order: on Maplewood Avenue, east on Inwood Place; on Maplewood Avenue east on Highland Avenue; on Maplewood Avenue, east on Baker; finally, Maplewood Avenue south to Lenox Place.  Updates to be provided on an ongoing basis.
