Paving project to begin Oct. 10

The milling and paving of Ventnor Avenue from Derby to Jackson avenues is scheduled to start Oct. 10.

Motorists are being advised now so they may plan ahead for possible detours and delays in the area.

The paving contractor will begin work at 7:30 a.m. each day, and Ventnor police officers will be on scene to assist motorists and workers. For the safety of all involved it is imperative that motorists follow the traffic control devices and practice safe driving habits.

City joins national day-long safe-driving initiative

Motorists in New Jersey and throughout the nation are asked to join a day-long effort on

Oct. 10 to increase awareness about safe driving behaviors and keep the state’s roadways fatality free for one-day.

Known as Put The Brakes On Fatalities Day, the national initiative was designed to unite the country in moving toward zero fatalities for one full day by encouraging motorists to obey all traffic laws, including buckling up, every ride; driving the posted speed limit; avoiding distractions while driving; and always being safe and sober behind the wheel.

To support this effort, Ventnor City police will conduct enhanced traffic-safety enforcement Oct. 10, specifically looking for motorists who are driving unsafely or inattentively.
