CITY OF ORANGE, NJ - The City of Orange announced that it recently received a $9.9 million low-interest rate loan from the NJ Transportation Bank to construct roadway improvements on a number of streets throughout the city.
The City of Orange worked closely with Pennoni Associates, Inc., a multidisciplinary consulting engineering firm, to complete the loan process. Funds received from the Transportation Bank, a joint low-rate loan program of DOT and the NJ Infrastructure Bank, will allow the City to improve more than 35,000 feet (6.7 miles) on 31 different roadways. The roadway improvements will include paving, utility upgrades, street tree planting, as well as the rehabilitation of driveways, sidewalks, and curbs. Safety upgrades include intersection improvements, high-visibility crosswalks, bicycle-safe grates, and ADA-compliant curb ramps. Construction is expected to commence in late May with the majority of work to be completed during the coming summer months to minimize the impact to residents and businesses throughout the city.
Pennoni Associates, Inc. is providing ongoing engineering design and construction management services to the City throughout the project.
According to Marty Mayes, the City's Director of Public Works, "This project presents an exciting opportunity for the City, makes an important contribution to the administration's larger initiative to revitalize the City's infrastructure and serves the community at the most efficient cost."
