NEWTON, NJ – The refurbishment process continues on the streets of Downtown Newton with Spring Street officially a one-way and the process continuing with curbing, milling and paving during the week of August 10.
The week prior, the waterline was installed in front of the Newton Fire Museum, with the work requiring closure of the roadway as it was completed.
Bump-out curbs are beginning to be placed on Spring Street, with the work in progress and anticipated for completion on Tuesday, August 11.
That same day, Tilcon is planned to commence the milling portion of the work on Spring Street, anticipated to last for the duration of the day and only that day. While milling is underway, the street will experience closures in the sections where milling is taking place.
Paving of Spring Street is scheduled for Wednesday, August 12, with the preferential order the Town of Newton has requested for the paving between Madison Street and Route 206 to commence first in order “to allow for routine business.” The paving is expected to last for no more than eight hours and portions of the road will be closed because the pavement must have a cool down period.
Officials from the Town of Newton will remain on Spring Street during the construction to ensure a smooth process.
The businesses in Downtown Newton are open during the construction and parking remains no cost in the following parking lots through September 11: Adams (Lot #1), Central Plaza (Lot #4) and Eastern Plaza (Lot #5).
The installation of the traffic lights for Trinity Street at the intersections of Moran Street and Union Place is also in process.
All projected construction schedules are weather permitting.
