ENGINEERING DIVISION INFORMATION
Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Engineering is a division of the Office of Administration. The Engineering Division has 3 full-time employees with more than 75 years of combined experience in West Milford. The Engineering Division is responsible for the planning, survey, design and construction of infrastructure projects and Township owned facilities including roads, storm drains, parking lots, Township properties, dams and bridges, etc. We also provide technical assistance and engineering expertise to other Township departments, boards and committees, maintain the Township tax maps and review and inspect all residential lot development plans. In 2012, twenty three lot development plans were reviewed and inspected, compared to 39 plans in 2011.
The Township of West Milford is responsible for 150 miles of paved Township roads and 6 miles of unpaved Township roads. In addition, there are 38 miles of non-Township and private roads, of which 15 miles are unpaved. The Engineering Division is responsible for the design and inspection of all Township road projects. This includes the annual road resurfacing, crack seal and guide rail programs, the annual New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Municipal Aid Program and any road assessment projects.
The Township Council appropriated new capital funding for road improvements and we were able to resurface and provide Municipal Storm Water Permit upgrades and storm drainage improvements, where required, for 1.5 miles of Township roads. In addition, the NJDOT grant resurfacing of La Rue Road was completed. In all, just over one million dollars of capital infrastructure projects were completed, which provided for the resurfacing and/or reconstruction and improvements to 2.9 miles of Township roads. Grant funds contributed $250,000 of the total for these projects. Passaic County completed 7.9 miles of road resurfacing, which represents 22% of the total County road mileage within West Milford.
The tax maps, F.E.M.A. flood maps and storm water outfall maps have all been added to the Township website and may be viewed from the Forms & Documents section.
Our office is located at 30 Lycosky Drive, adjacent to the Recycling Center. If you have any questions please call us at 973-728-2858 or contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
