Ridge Roadwork Not Expected To Impact Back-To-School Traffic
But, repaving will shut the road down toward the end of the summer
Roadwork on Ridge Road should not affect back-to-school driving, Township Engineer Mike Kelly said at a town council meeting last week.
Preparatory and concrete work should start on the road by the end of this week, Kelly said. The road should remain open to traffic during this process, which should take about a week or so, he said.
The road will, however, be closed to thru traffic during the actual repaving period, which should take place the week or two before school is back in session. According to Kelly, the stretch of Ridge Road between Lydia Lane and West Ramapo Ave. will be shut for about a week toward the end of August.
The contractor “assured us he will have no problem finishing [the repaving] before school opens,” Kelly said.
The first day of the 2012-2013 school year is Wednesday, September 5.
