Hunterdon Public Works 2021 Annual Report Details Twenty-Nine Completed Projects
Major Projects Completed In Addition
To Ida Emergency Repairs
The Hunterdon County Department of Public Works issued its 2021 Annual Report, outlining the completion of numerous county public works projects over the course of the past year, County Commissioner Board member Shaun C. Van Doren announced at the June 7th Board meeting.
Van Doren, the Board’s liaison for the Public Works Department, said, “The report documents twenty-nine completed projects, from road reconstruction, surface treatment, line striping, culvert and bridge repairs or rehabilitation, and bridge painting. The report includes before and after photographs, a true testament to the work of the Department.
I think we should all appreciate the outstanding effort of the County Department in not only completing the planned infrastructure work, but also the emergency completion of repairs to eleven roads, bridges, and culverts damaged by tropical storm Ida on September 1st.”
Van Doren noted, “While I have the honor of announcing the report as the Department’s liaison, and it is quite an astounding record of achievement, credit is very much due not only to the Department’s leadership and workforce, but also to Deputy Director Zach Rich who served as liaison for the Department last year.”
Thomas Mathews, County Engineer and Department Director, said, “The repair and maintenance of the county’s roads and bridges ensures safe travel routes and ensures the continued economic growth of the county.
Adapting to the changing conditions of the county’s roads due to everyday use and environmental impacts is a year-round challenge which the Department consistently identifies, and I am proud of the work they have accomplished.”
“The annual report is available on-line at the Department of Public Works and Engineering page. I encourage everyone to take a moment to review the real record of work performed for Hunterdon County’s public and all who use our roadways and bridges,” Van Doren concluded.
