Reader says ” The last time West Saddle River Road was Paved My Grandson was 3 ,he is 29 Now”

roadwork

West Saddle River road was supposedly on the paving list for last year but they did the road only as far as the Ridgewood-Hohokus border. This is the road that needs to be widened if we expect 2 way traffic when Schedler is finished. To my certain knowledge the last time it was paved was when our grandson was 3, and now he is 29! How do I know? Because he and I spent almost every good weather day watching them.
