Road Work Ahead 
May 20, 2022

Road work is underway in three Hazlet neighborhoods, as the Hazlet Township Committee's ambitious Road Restoration Program rolls on. 

On Monday, Lucas Brothers Contractors will start work on Hemlock and surrounding streets, off Union Avenue. Over by Cove Road School, JF Kiely Contractors is currently installing a new NJNG main on Monterey. S. Brothers General Contractors is busy behind Airport Plaza, in the neighborhoods of Wagon Road; and Coach, Surrey and Carriage Drives, installing storm water drainage system improvements. 

All of these areas will get new curbing and certain driveway aprons replaced as needed, as well as ADA compliant sidewalk ramps at intersections. The entire roadway surface will be milled and repaved and look brand new. 

"Residents can expect to see a lot of work being done, and they will be able to see their tax dollars at work," said Mayor Michael Sachs. 

Hazlet launched the Roadway Restoration Program in 2018 with a list of 110 municipal roads on the to-do list. 

Repairs began in 2019 and are being completed in phases, in coordination with NJNG utility work when possible. The work is partially funded by NJDOT Municipal Aid Grant Program and financing from a Monmouth County Community Development Block Grant. T& M Engineering is overseeing the work. 

 Information about current program activities can be found on the township website. Visit the Road Program section.
