Repaving In Downtown Bayonne, Moving North, Starts Next Week


Next Phase of Street Paving to Start in Bayonne

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that Phase II of the 2023 street-paving in Bayonne will start the week of October 23, weather permitting.

The contractor, 4 Clean-Up, Inc. of North Bergen, plans to start resurfacing designated streets in downtown Bayonne and then to work its way northward.

If cold weather were to prevent the completion of paving in the autumn, the project would resume in the spring of 2024.

The $1,056,000 paving program was funded by an Urban Aid grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).

Mayor Davis said, “The City of Bayonne would like to thank Governor Phil Murphy, the NJDOT, and our state legislators for supporting Bayonne’s paving program each year.

We will continue to make careful use of state and federal funding to resurface streets throughout our community.”  Twelve streets are included in this paving project.

They are:  West 5th Street between Humphreys Avenue and Kennedy Blvd.; East 5th Street between Broadway and Cottage Street; Cottage Street between East 5th Street and Hobart Avenue; West 19th Street between Avenue C and Kennedy Blvd.; West 20th Street between Avenue C and Broadway; West 21st Street between Avenue C and Kennedy Blvd.; East 25th Street between Broadway and Avenue E; West 36th Street between Avenue C and Broadway; West 44th Street between Avenue C and Broadway; West 49th Street between Avenue C and Broadway; West Grand Street between Broadway and West 49th Street; and West 57th Street between Avenue B and Kennedy Boulevard.  

According to 4 Clean-Up, work will take place on weekdays only, beginning at 7:00 a.m. and ending at 4:00 p.m.  The crews will mill and clear existing road surfaces before paving.  Concrete work will also be included in the project where needed.  

Signs will be posted at least 48 hours in advance to advise residents and motorists of the impact the work will have on parking and driving on the affected streets.

City of Bayonne

Bayonne is a community that retains many of the elements of a small town. One and two family homes, small apartment buildings, and small business predominate. There is a population of 62,000 people who take pride in their hometown and its history. Bayonne residents and their ancestors moved to the city from many parts of the world. During colonial times and the first century of the American Republic, the Dutch, British, and Africans were the first groups to arrive after the Native Americans. Subsequent waves of immigrants came from all over Europe, especially between the 1880s and the 1920s. In recent decades, sources of immigration have largely been represented from countries in Latin America, the Middle East, and Southeastern Asia. Each group has left its mark on the cultural, religious and political life of the community.
