BRICK – A $408,360 contract has been awarded for roadway resurfacing in the Pine Terrace section of the township to S. Brothers Inc. of South River, NJ.
The contract consists of utility trench repairs, milling, paving, minor curbing and driveway repairs along Smith Drive, Smith Circle, Conifer Road, Eisenhower Drive North, Sudbury Road and Parklane Drive, announced Mayor John G. Ducey during the January 11 council meeting.
Bid notices went out to 74 prospective bidders from the township bidder’s list, 14 of those picked up bid packages, and seven bids were received.
The prices ranged from the winning low bid to a high bid of $642,192. The other bids fell in the middle, he said.
The Pine Terrace area of town is located near the border of Point Pleasant in a neighborhood near St. Martha Roman Catholic Church off Route 88.
The start date on the road improvements is not imminent since there has not even been a pre-construction meeting yet, said Township Business Administrator Joanne Bergin.
Asphalt plant production is intermittent during the winter months since asphalt cannot properly set, mix or cure if the temperature is too cold.
