BERKELEY – Fort De France Avenue, which strides through the senior communities, will be milled and repaved, Mayor Carmen Amato said.

The road is a long road that curves through the residential area, sometimes with nothing but trees on one side. It shares intersections with major roads like Mule Road and Jamaica Boulevard.

Amato announced the project at a recent Township Council meeting, where he noted that State Department of Transportation funds will provide $340,000 out of the total $420,000 cost.

The project also involves installation of handicapped ramps at the intersections, and work on the sidewalks.
