Microsurfacing is a cost-efficient surface treatment to renew a road surface and extend the life of the pavement. During the process, a layer of asphalt emulsion is blended with finely crushed stone for traction to protect the pavement from moisture penetration and oxidation. Asphalt Paving Systems of Hammonton NJ, is the contractor hired by the City of Summit to apply the material.
Emergency vehicles will always have access to roads in critical situations. Residents with questions should contact the Department of Community Services (DCS) at 908 / 273-6404. Contact the Summit Police at 908 / 273-0051 if it is necessary to leave cars on the street overnight to avoid being ticketed. Residents are encouraged to check the City of Summit website daily for scheduling updates and other project-related information.
