Road Work in Bordentown Township for Spring 2017

bordentownroadwork.pngStarting on or about Wednesday April 5, 2017, the following roadwork will start in the Township. Notices (letter - [1 week prior] and a door hanger - [48 hours prior]) will be provided to each resident advising them of the scheduled roadwork in the affected areas.  The ten (10) roads noted for "Mill & Overlay" will be resurfaced and should be completed in 3-4 weeks.
Mill & Overlay Project
  1. Lexington Road
  2. South Colonial Drive
  3. North Colonial Drive
  4. Tidewater Court
  5. Reichert Avenue
  6. Philmont Avenue
  7. Fernwood Avenue
  8. Grover Avenue
  9. Carmen Avenue
  10. Bywater Avenue 
The  Road Program "Microsurfacing Project" of eight (8) roads will occur in May.  The placement of this material is more temperature sensitive and requires road temperatures to be maintained (nighttime temps) above 50 degrees.  This process will also restrict vehicles from traveling upon them for a minimum of 4 hours.   As we get closer to the date for microsurfacing, the same written notices and door hangers will be provided to each of the residents explaining in detail the work and limitations on parking/access. Notices (letter - [1 week prior] and a door hanger - [48 hours prior]) will be provided to each resident advising them of the scheduled roadwork in the affected areas.
Microsurfacing Project
  1. Hilltop Drive
  2. Homestead Avenue
  3. Roosevelt Avenue
  4. Liberty Avenue
  5. Princeton Court
  6. Delaware Drive
  7. Valley Forge Road
  8. Germantown Road
As always with temperature sensitive projects weather conditions will affect the  timelines of these projects.
The Committee is happy to share this good news with you and will keep residents informed of future projects as well.

Contact DEP For Odor Complaints

Residents of Bordentown Township who experience landfill and/or industrial odors in their neighborhood should contact the NJDEP hotline by calling 1-877-927-6337 to report the odors.

If you suspect the odors are coming from the nearby landfills in Pennsylvania, please be sure to also report the odors to the Pennsylvania DEP by calling 1-484-250-5991 during normal business hours or by calling 1-484-250-5900 after hours and weekends.  Residents can also submit an online report to the PADEP by clicking this link:


Reporting odors to the NJDEP and PADEP will help the township with documenting the incidents to the authorities that can lend assistance to resolve the problems. Calling the hotline numbers is very important because it will force corrective action.

In addition to reporting the odors to the two state agencies listed above, residents may also wish to consider reporting a landfill odor to Waste Management directly by calling 609-499-0500.  This number is direct to Waste Management.  By calling this line, your complaint should initiate a quicker response from their staff in order to investigate and correct whatever situation may be causing the odors.
