Road work slated to start

Plainfield Avenue is slated for milling and resurfacing.

Plainfield Avenue
between West Fifth and Front Streets is scheduled to be resurfaced beginning on or around July 28.

The project is being managed by Union County through a shared services agreement with the City in which Plainfield is saving money on the cost of the project since it is folded into the county's summer road work scheduled countywide.

Though most of the county's program is being done at night (between 9 PM and 6 AM), for some unexplained reason the Plainfield work is being during daylight hours. For more on the Union County 2014 road projects, see the Westfield Patch's report here.

I like that it is being done during day light hours. They can see well, work faster, and should do a perfect job because many people will be watching.

It's a lot more expensive to do road work at night. Really only makes sense on a highway with heavy day time traffic. Also the noise factor is an issue in a residential neighborhood.
