Hardyston Township Road Resurfacing Projects to Begin the Week of 8/8/22

Hardyston Township as part of their ongoing roadway maintenance program evaluates the condition of the road system and schedules roads for resurfacing. Road improvements and maintenance are included as part of the Township’s annual capital improvement budget.

This year roads will be resurfaced using a process called cape seal.

Cape seal is a two part process. The first part of the process involves tar & stone. After the tar & stone has time to settle and harden and the roads have been swept a second application is applied to smooth and seal the surface. Drivers and pedestrians should exercise caution when traveling on roads that have recently received the tar and stone application until loose stone has been swept from the road surface. Once applied the road will be closed to traffic for a few hours to allow for the seal to harden. During this time residents will need to avoid accessing the roads and their driveway. 24-48 hours’ notice will be given to residents prior to any road closures. Once the slurry seal process is completed the road surface will be smooth similar to a typically paving project.

A video demonstrating the application process can be found here –

SCMUA Leachate Pump Station and Force Main Project
The Leachate Pump Station/Force Main Project includes construction of 30,000 linear feet of HDPE force main to convey leachate from the SCMUA Solid Waste Facility in Lafayette, NJ to the existing SCMUA wastewater transmission system in Franklin, NJ which ultimately is treated at the Upper Wallkill Facility in Hardyston, NJ. The construction contract was awarded to Tomco Construction (“Tomco”) on August 12, 2020 and the Notice to Proceed was issued on September 3, 2020.

To date, site grubbing and silt fence installation (i.e. site preparation and erosion control) has taken place along the full alignment. Between today and the end of 2020, Tomco will complete site preparation and receive material deliveries. Materials will then be transported to intermediate staging areas along the alignment within the easement across from the Sussex County Technical School on Route 94. The installation of the piping is currently scheduled to begin on January 4, 2021 within the easement. The anticipated project completion date is September 3, 2021.
