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.

Traffic Calming Petition and Policy & Procedures PDF Print E-mail

Roundabouts, curb bulb-outs, and speed humps are all are forms of traffic calming, which offer relief for speeding and some forms of aggressive driving when properly applied. Pedestrians especially can benefit from traffic calming. These physical changes to the roadway, as well as other forms of traffic calming such as signage or roadway marking changes, can be thought of as a "silent policeman" - enforcing speed limits without actual law enforcement presence. The Township Engineering Bureau has developed a policy for implementation as well as a petition form for use by residents interested in pursuing traffic calming for their street.
