Important Notice – Upcoming Work in the Hilltop Streets Neighborhood

Dear Frenchtown:

On Friday, June 12th, Maser Consulting (the Borough’s engineering firm) in conjunction with a drilling company will be conducting geotechnical and rock drilling work on Ward Street; Maple, Chestnut, and Hilltop Avenues. The work is associated with the Borough of Frenchtown’s ongoing application to the USDA for funding for the installation of sewer lines and road repairs along these streets.

The work is scheduled to begin at 8 AM. Maser Consulting will provide full-time technical observation of the drilling activities and the work should be completed in one day. The contractor will ensure that residents can get in and out of their driveways.

I apologize for the short notice but this drilling data is absolutely essential to the design portion of the Borough’s application to the USDA. Our engineer needs to obtain precise bedrock depth to complete the next phase of the application which has a tight deadline. In addition, contractor availability is also difficult due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency.

Thank you for your understanding.
