Asphalt Costs Boost Prices of Road Projects

A need for more asphalt in one road project and increases in the material’s cost in two others lead to a total $92,000 increase in the cost of those projects.

The three projects total about $1.2 million.

The Township Council approved change orders for the increases at its Sept. 24 meeting.

The biggest increase came in the $431,394.62 Clyde Road paving contracted awarded to Shifano Construction of Middlesex. An uptick in the cost of asphalt boosted that job by $34,571.95.

The increase in the asphalt price resulted in a $25,783.83 increase in a $253,380 repaving contract awarded to CCM Contracting of Green Brook for Worlds Fair Drive.

And a need to buy an additional $31,450 worth of asphalt for the Cooper Avenue repaving project lead to an increase in that $430,841.60contract, awarded to Top Line Construction of Somerville.
