Closures Planned for State Street Repaving

More angle parking spaces coming to State Street.

State Street will be subject to intermittent closures over three days later this month as part of a project to repave the Teaneck thoroughfare, the township announced Wednesday.

The roadway will close at 7 a.m. Oct. 24 as crews begin milling work, followed by paving and line striping through 6 p.m. Oct. 26, according to a township statement. Residents were advised to plan alternate routes but the roadway will reopen as each phase of the project is completed.

Closures will depend on weather and be in place from the State Street Bridge to Teaneck Road, the statement said. Restrictions at the parking lot on State Street, near Terrace Circle, have been lifted during the work.  

As part of the project, the south side of State Street will be converted to angle parking, Township Manager William Broughton said. The change will add about seven parking spaces.

“It’s for the benefit of the residents,” Broughton said.

The $285,000 project is funded using a community development grant. A project is already underway on Lozier Place to upgrade area sewer systems, and crews have begun work to replace curbs and handicapped ramps in the area.

How could this possibly be for the benefit of the residents? This is so annoying!

Lets just handle it by raising more taxes in Teaneck and using more on duty police officers to redirect traffic. I love the way this town thinks.

Curious, Armando. What section of town do you reside in?

oh Armao, I can not take your garbage anymore. Do you honestly think that Teaneck would go out of there way and spend money to annoy a mr Armando. If i didnt know better i would say my taxes are helping you!!!

What about the disruptions to the bus schedules, school children walking to school like Ben Franklin, and disruptions to the flow of traffic all to get a nicer paved road on State Street, John? Don't you think that there are other roads that require the allocation of our tax dollars? C'mon John. Don' let bureacracy warp your mind.
