LITTLE SILVER: A county project that would have paved major local road has been rescheduled.
Mayor Robert Neff announced in the November borough newsletter that the paving of Prospect Avenue has been delayed until the spring. The project was originally going to start in October.
"While the delay is frustrating, it is due in part to a drainage issue at the corner of Church and Prospect, which is being repaired, and the borough's intention to improve the safety of the Prospect/Kings/ Willow intersection in cooperation with the county," Neff said in the newsletter. "The safety improvements, including lit signage, are best performed before the road is paved."
Neff said the delay may be for the best because snow plows and ice melts could have damage the newly-paved road this winter
There is no official start date for the project at this time.
Prospect Avenue is arguably the borough's busiest road as it is main road that runs through the downtown area where many stores and restaurants are located.
