Cedar Grove Parkway will be repaired in 2015 after the Township Council approved several grants during its July 8 meeting.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation provided $232,000 to Cedar Grove for the reconstruction of the street, according to Municipal Clerk Kathleen Stutz. Repairs to Cedar Grove Parkway, which is bordered by Fairview and Pompton avenues, is estimated to begin by next spring, according to a representative from the Cedar Grove Engineering Department.
The council also approved a $19,350 grant from the Clean Community Program, which funds T-shirts provided during an annual “Clean Sweep” day in Cedar Grove. June 7 marked Cedar Grove’s 24th “Clean Sweep,” where more than 300 locals participated in cleaning public areas within the township.
Another grant of $5,000 came from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety to fund a 2014 “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. The first campaign this year occurred January.
