Complete Streets: Douglas St. & Millburn Ave. - Update 8/7

Update: August 7th

Information regarding additional 2 ft of curb on the north side of Millburn Avenue between Spring St. and Douglas St.: 

Arterial, L.L.C. has provided the following information regarding the 2 ft. curb addition, included in the work directive for the final piece of Phase 1 currently under contract, on the north side of Millburn Avenue between Douglas Street and Spring Street.

Street Trees

Street trees in 4 ft. planting beds can be provided along the proposed curbline while maintaining a 5.5 ft. sidewalk. If the curbs remain at their current width, the trees slated for planting would need to be eliminated from the project.

Drainage

If the current curb is left in place, the inlet in front of Gotham would require relocation and reconstruction.

Driveways

There are several driveways located along the northern side. The additional 2 ft. allows for properly-sloped driveway aprons and a 4 ft. clear zone to make this area ADA-compliant.

*The goal of the Option B compromise is to allow the Township the flexibility to return to 2 lanes of traffic, if desired in the future. The additional 2 feet on the north side curb line and 38 foot curb to curb width of the designed roadway would allow for that flexibility. 


Project Description

Construction is slated to begin in August at the corner of Douglas Street and Millburn Avenue, as approved by the Township Committee. This will conclude construction associated with Phase 1 of Complete Streets that was publicly bid in Spring 2016. The scope of work is detailed in the Option B diagram below. Work will include increasing the pedestrian refuge island to accommodate shorter crossing distances, shifting the curb on Douglas Street 2.5 feet to accommodate an ADA-compliant curb ramp, and adjustments made to the corner of Millburn Avenue and Spring Street for additional turn maneuverability to facilitate movement to the new Washington School. More details will be posted as information regarding the construction schedule is available.
