The Montclair Engineering Bureau is primarily responsible for design and construction management for capital improvements to Township infrastructure. Program areas include street improvements, parks, and drainage/storm sewers. The Township Engineer also serves as the designated Stormwater Program Coordinator for Montclair, in compliance with New Jersey's Stormwater Management regulations adopted in 2004.

Other responsibilities of the Engineering Bureau include permitting and inspections for private construction of sidewalk, curb and driveway aprons; traffic engineering and safety studies; maintenance of Township street and tax maps; and assistance to residents with engineering-related matters.

The Montclair SAFE initiative was recently launched to support walking and bicycling through improved infrastructure and to raise awareness of the many efforts underway to make our streets safer for all road users. SAFE = Streets Are For Everyone! In addition to a needed focus on safety of pedestrians and cyclists as the most vulnerable road users; we also support walking and cycling to enhance health, reduce traffic congestion, promote economic development and improve the overall quality of life throughout our community.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Street Reconstruction PDF Print E-mail

What is included in the project? The Township will be milling and paving the roadway in your neighborhood within the next few days weather permitting.

How long will the work take? The construction time will vary depending on the street length, however you can expect work to last approximately three (3) to five (5) days. Please note all estimates for length of construction are estimates, which may be affected by inclement weather, material supply problems, etc.

What are construction hours? Work hours are typically 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Will the street be closed? The street will be closed to through traffic during the milling and paving operation. These closings will not extend beyond the workday. In fact, it is preferable to close the street both for the safety of motorists and the contractor’s personnel. Parking on the street is prohibited during construction activities, but is allowed when the contractor is not working, i.e. evenings and weekends. You can expect delays getting in and out due to construction activity. If you require immediate access to your vehicle(s) during the day; we recommend parking your vehicle(s) elsewhere before 7:00 a.m. on construction days.

Will access to my driveway be blocked and if so, for how long? During the time the milling and paving is actually being completed you will not be able to use your driveway. Prior to the posted construction start date and time you should then move any vehicle(s) you need to use off the street before 7:00 a.m. on that day

Will I be able to park on the street at night? Generally, yes. We work with the Montclair Police Department to monitor construction areas in order to prevent residents in those areas from being ticketed when parked on the street at night. However, this does not mean you may park in violation of traffic laws (no parking within 10 ft. of a hydrant, 25 ft. of an intersection or crosswalk, etc.).

What should I do if there’s a problem? The Township assigns a supervisor to each project and you can always speak to him or her at the job site. The supervisor for this project is Rob Bianco. If the supervisor is not on site, we ask that you do not approach the contractor but immediately call the Department of Community Services at 973-509-5711. The supervisor will contact you by phone and/or return to the job site within a short time.
