Morristown, N.J. – Morris County’s 2015 road resurfacing program will commence the week of May 11, 2015 on West Mill Road in Washington Township. This is just the beginning of an ambitious 32 mile program for 2015, funded through county and state dollars.

Pipe and drainage work of a 1.8 mile stretch of West Mill Road from the Hunterdon County line through Beacon Hill Road is planned to begin on May 11 and construction work, including the milling and the repaving of that stretch of West Mill Road, will begin on or about May 18.

Morris County Freeholder David Scapicchio said the work is part of the county’s enhanced road resurfacing program for 2015. The county budgeted over $6 million in their 2015 Capital Program for roadway resurfacing in order to continue provide the high level of work that was implemented in 2014.

Scapicchio, freeholder liaison to the Department of Planning and Public Works, said the pipe and drainage work is expected to take place between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., while milling and paving work will be done between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The contractor will work closely with local police and make adjustments as necessary.

The entire project should be completed in two to three weeks. Traffic will be alternated, as there are no available detours. Road closures are not expected, but should they become necessary, Scapicchio said any closure will be properly signed and coordinated with the local police departments.
