Engineering is a division of the Office of Administration. The Engineering Division has 3 full-time employees with more than 70 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, bridges, and traffic signals. We also provide technical assistance and engineering expertise to other Township departments, boards and committees, maintain the Township tax maps and review and inspect residential lot development plans.
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 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.
In 2017, 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. In addition, the NJDOT Municipal Aid grant construction contract for Ridge Road – Section 3, Contract 4 was awarded and provided for Bikeway improvements between Alpine Ridge Road and Vreeland Road. In total, capital funding accounted for over 5.2 miles of road improvements. The annual Sediment Control Retrofit Program was completed jointly with Department of Public Works staff. The Nosenzo Pond Park Project provided for improvements to the athletic field, paved parking lot with lighting, dog park and accessibility improvements. Assistance was provided to Passaic County for the construction of the joint Township/County Shared Salt Building and the Warwick Turnpike bridge. In total, the Engineering Division was involved whole or in part with 2.3 million dollars of local capital infrastructure projects.
