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.

Park Street Construction Update PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Due to the early onset of winter weather, the Township has directed the contractor to suspend construction on Park Street until 2015.  All curb and drainage work has been completed between Walnut Street and Claremont Avenue.  Work will resume in mid-March, weather permitting; however a notice will be delivered to the affected properties a week or so before construction restarts.  We anticipate work will resume at Claremont Avenue and proceed toward Bloomfield Avenue and then move to the section between Walnut and Chestnut Streets.

For information purposes only, the section between Chestnut Street and Watchung Avenue has been scheduled for the summer of 2015. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work toward completing these needed infrastructure improvements.

Area improvements will include new curb along the storefronts and traffic calming bump-outs at Church Street and Trinity Place. Improvements will complement the recent upgrade to South Park Street as well as the new retail and residential development at Valley and Bloomfield Avenue.

 
"Drive with Care in Montclair" to Host Bike and Pedestrian Safety Meeting Oct 8 PDF Print E-mail

Pedestrian and bike safety strategic planning meeting to be held October 8.

Montclair's "Drive with Care in Montclair" campaign is focused on making streets safer, so all users of the road feel safe whether they are traveling by foot, bike, car, or other means. Sparked by an idea of Second Ward Councilor Robin Schlager, the campaign is funded by Partners for Health Foundation and administered through the Township Council's advisory committee on Pedestrian Safety. The Committee will hold a strategic planning meeting to solicit public feedback on Wednesday, October 8 at 7:00 p.m. at Fire Department Headquarters, 1 Pine Street.

Much of the threat to people walking and cycling safely comes from motorists’ speed. The faster a vehicle is traveling, the more likely crash injuries to a person on foot or bicycle will be serious, if not fatal.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration* when people walking or cycling are hit by a car:
