Edison Mayor Sam Joshi and the Edison Council announced the 2022 road paving list Sept. 19, 2022.

The $7 million investment in the municipality which aims to update Edison’s road infrastructure includes more than 100 roads, totaling 19 miles, the most annual road projects any Edison Mayor has announced to date, a press release from the Mayor’s office said.

“Our roads have long been neglected,” Mayor Sam Joshi is quoted saying in the press release. “It’s my administration’s job to fill those potholes, and take care of our roads.”

Joshi said the engineering department examined every Township road and gave it a rating based on its condition and the number of drivers using the road.

The roads on the list announced were ones identified as most in need of repaving.

“This is just the beginning,” Mayor Joshi said. “Every year we have the opportunity to improve our infrastructure even more.”

The Township list includes about 100 roads and a handful of publicly-owned parking lots, including the Midtown Softball and Edison Boys’ Baseball lots.

Middlesex County and PSE&G are also working with Edison Township to pave two dozen additional roads.

The road work will start this year and continue through early next year if needed, the press release said.
