4:30 p.m. We have an update from the town:
Paving of the northbound road was completed earlier today and all fencing was removed from the east side of the street. Starting tomorrow morning (Tuesday, July 31), the street will be opened one-way for northbound traffic, however trucks will not be permitted until further notice.
The contractor will continue working on the west side of the street, with the cobblestone median and tree pits to be installed later this week. The bumpout in front of Starbucks will be completed tomorrow and the new handicap ramp on the southeast corner will also be constructed.
Project work should be substantially complete by August 17.
Lots of activity at Montclair’s South Park Street today, as workers ready the street so it can be opened to vehicular traffic (sometime this week maybe?). The entire project isn’t due to be completed until at least mid-August. Here’s a look at how it’s shaping up.
