POLL: Did Township’s $1.1M Road Improvement Program Address Major Issues?
Roadwork on 15 streets throughout Mahwah is expected to finish up next week
Within the next week, the 2012 Roads Program in Mahwah, which paved sections of 15 streets throughout the township, will be complete. According to an update given by township engineer Mike Kelly at a town council meeting last week, the repaving, curb and sidewalk improvements made to the roadways should be completed on time, by Oct. 15.
One of the major aspects of the program was a repaving of Ridge Road, which was finished first, before school began last month.
The town has since made improvements to Armour, Bellgrove, Lawrence, Moffat, Stag Hill, Mahwah, Franklin Turnpike, Doremus, Alcott, Babcock, Davidson, Olney and Stonewall roads, and Macarthur Boulevard.
The entire roads program this year cost the township about $1.1M. At last Thursday’s meeting, Councilman Harry Williams commented that the program had been “a success,” and that many roads in the township are “a lot better” than they were before.

Now, Patch wants to know, do you think the money was well spent?
