Lenox Avenue Road Improvements


Lenox Avenue Road Improvements(from S. Wyoming Avenue to S. Ridgewood Road) Lenox Place, Lenox Terrace. Curb & Sidewalk work is planned to start the week of May 15, 2017. The work will be from 7am to 4pm & is planned to take 3-4 weeks, weather permitting.

As part of the project, the work will consist of drainage improvements, replacing of the curbing with granite block curbing and a new asphalt driving surface.

Your may notice yellow, blue, green and/or red spray paint markings in the road and sidewalk area. They are to help locate the respective underground utilities in the area.

Also, during this time, your driveway access will be limited. Although this can be an inconvenience, we will try to minimize this disruption. During construction, cars will not be allowed to be parked on the road. 

The Contractor will inform you a day prior to your driveway access being limited. If you need to park overnight on the roadway, please contact the South Orange Police Department at 973-763-3000 and inform them that there is roadwork on your street. It usually takes 1-2 days to get your driveway access back once the material cures.

If you have a sprinkler system near the curb and sidewalk area, please locate them for the Contractor. The Village and Contractor will not be responsible for damages. If damages do occur, please notify me prior to having them repaired.

Please do not approach or attempt to discuss the project with individual workers as they do not have the authority to make changes to the project scope or perform additional work.

Any disturbed areas as a result of the work being performed will be top soiled and seeded.

Once, the curbing is completed, we will then follow up with a schedule for paving which should take 2 days.

If you have questions regarding road closures or specific construction issues, please contact:
