HC Streets to be Improved in 2014

Four streets in Harvey Cedars that were damaged during Superstorm Sandy will be repaired according to a resolution which the Commissioners adopted last week. The streets are: E 84th Street, E Passaic Ave, Cox Ave and Holly Ave. The repairs will cost less than $36,000 so the Borough is not required to put the repairs out for bid. Borough Clerk Daina Dale said HC received and accepted a quote for $35,000 from All-Surface Asphalt Paving of Point Pleasant.

The road damage is mostly from erosion so “This was not the type of job where we’re resurfacing the street, which is a lot more expensive,” said Dale.

As the repairs are mostly Sandy-related, the borough expects to be refunded the repair costs by FEMA, according to Mayor Jon Oldham. “There is a lot of sediment that is clogging the drains. We expect the work to be done in the spring.”

    Since Holly and Cox off of Essex are being re-done, I think there are the same issues on the parallel streets off Essex, Olsen and Fives. Any info on them?

    Sorry no further info Joel. MAybe Public Works has an update, but we are not aware of anything else at this point.
