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 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 all 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 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.
In 2016, 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 5.1 miles of Township roads. A revitalization of the Road Assessment Program was approved by the Township Council and the preliminary stages of design are underway. The annual Sediment Control Retrofit Program was completed jointly with Department of Public Works staff. The Westbrook Park Phase 2 project, which included the repair of failing retaining walls, construction of accessibility ramps, decommissioning of a swimming pool and restoration of basketball courts, was completed with Engineering Division assistance. Assistance was provided for repair of the Town Hall septic system. In total, over one million dollars of capital infrastructure projects were completed.
