Earlier this week Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop announced that the city is freezing approval for any non-essential PSE&G repairs. Many residents have complained that when PSE&G repairs its infrastructure, it does not adequately restore the roads once its work is done.
A new city law, adopted by the city council in January requires that contractors who work on roads that have been resurfaced in the last decade resurface the roads “from curb to curb … as per the municipal engineer’s standards” when they complete their work. Crosswalks must also be restriped and brick crosswalks restored.
If you have any concerns about work being done on roads in your neighborhood, do not hesitate to contact your representatives, including your county committee representatives. Ward E, District 6 residents (or anyone else if you are uncertain who your representatives are) can contact me through this online form with any questions.
9/21/2015 UPDATE: Jersey City and PSE&G have reached an agreement on a repaving schedule for city streets. Repairs have resumed.
