The borough has been trying to get the sidewalk replacement and repaving job started for a week, but coincidentally, to the dismay of these construction workers, it didn’t begin until the hottest day so far this year.

Content in the shaded cockpit of a construction vehicle, Rick Granadeiro watches as his co-workers sweat it out.

A Red Bank Police official said the construction, along with closure of the road to thru traffic, is expected to take at least a week.

Today, redbankgreen engages in a bit of Sol Searching as we chase the sun across the Green on the longest – thanks to the Summer Solstice – and, by coincidence, so-far-hottest day of the year. Please check in regularly to see where we’ve been. Suggestions? Send ’em here, please.
