If you were surprised to see that the stretch of Fairview Avenue that’s in Verona was to be repaved, you weren’t the only one.

According to Town Engineer Jim Helb, Verona officials got an unexpected, but very welcome, phone call a couple of weeks ago from Essex County officials that money for paving the county road that they had long requested was now available. “It’s unexpected but great for us,” said Helb at Monday night’s Town Council meeting. “Fairview definitely needed it, especially near Bloomfield.”

The milling began last Thursday and the paving should be completed by this Thursday. The road will not be closed for the actual paving until 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursday and will reopen after dismissal so Verona High Students can get to and from school.  Students were notified on Tuesday that there will be no parking on Fairview on Wednesday and Thursday, and that senior out-to-lunch privileges will be suspended on those days as well.
