Ridgewood Hopes to Re-pave Van Dien Ave.

Work may begin this spring.

The village council is on track to pass a resolution giving the go-ahead to repave both sections of busy Van Dien Avenue in the spring.

Depending on capital funds available and grant money, North and South Van Dien could be repaved as early as April, Village Manager Ken Gabbert said.

Ridgewood has applied for a $150,000 state DOT grant, according to Village Engineer Chris Rutishauser. It's still unclear how much, if any, would be funded, he said.

What about Barnett?? They have been promising me new paving for years now. I've lived on Barnett for 38 years and it has been " slurry coated once" Come on now!

Do we know how Van Dien jumped up to the top of the list?

They should widen the intersections between Glen and Linwood and put in left turn lanes. There should be some way to get a few feet of land from Valley and BF near the intersections in order to get it done.
