The Hawthorne Borough Council has adopted bond ordinances to fund road repaving during the summer of 2021. All of Emeline Drive and Tenth Avenue will be completed under one contract, with Cheryl Hills Drive and North Fourth Avenue being included should prices come in low enough. If either or both of these two streets does not get paved in 2021 due to insufficient funding, it will be completed in 2022 All of Parmelee Avenue will be paved under a second contract using a New Jersey Department of Transportation Local Aid grant. Also included in this year's construction will be handicapped curb ramps at scattered locations in the Borough, funded by a federal Community Development Block Grant received through Passaic County.
On all streets, the Borough will pay for asphalt milling and repaving, plus curbs and handicapped curb ramps where needed. Sidewalks and driveway aprons will be replaced as necessary as well, but these costs will be assessed to the owners of abutting properties. Letters have already gone out to these property owners informing them of the process.
It is expected that contracts for these projects will be awarded in May after receipt of competitive bids, with construction beginning in June Work on Bamford Avenue around the High School will be scheduled so as not to interfere with school while it is in session..
