The following is an update from the Township of Maplewood on Monday, July 18:
Construction Update at 160 Maplewood Avenue
Installation of the footings to begin today
The site excavation is substantially completed, and installation of the footings will begin today. The footings will consist of poured concrete supports around the perimeter of the building, and within what will be the building footprint. Construction of the foundation wall will immediately follow. This work is expected to take no longer than five weeks.
Please continue to avoid walking along the construction fencing, either on the sidewalk portion or the street. For safety, use the crosswalk at Inwood Place.
Please avoid walking, jogging, running, biking, scooting, roller-blading, skateboarding, etc between Maplewood Avenue and the NJT tunnel by going through the Village Coffee parking lot, unless you’re going to a car within that lot. There is a covered pedestrian walkway between Maplewood Avenue and the tunnel specifically constructed for the purpose of safe passage.
There is a construction going on. Let’s exercise caution by using the safe routes!
