ROAD EXPECTED TO REOPEN FRIDAY MORNING AT 5 A.M.
SUSSEX TURNPIKE PAVING SET FOR WEEK OF OCT. 24
The Sussex Turnpike project in Randolph will be finalized over the next few weeks, with the contractor set to start milling the road tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 20, followed by resurfacing that should begin on Monday.
Sussex Turnpike will be closed starting at 8 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday) at Hanover Avenue until about 5 a.m. on Friday to allow for milling of Sussex Turnpike to achieve the proper new grade.
A full detour around the area will be in effect overnight.
Resurfacing to start on Monday should take three days, followed by installation of pavement markings to complete the work.
Police will be on site to direct traffic through the construction zone during this period, with most work taking place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Concrete Construction Corp. is mobilizing this week to begin final completion of the Sussex Turnpike project.
The nearly $5 million Sussex Turnpike intersection improvement project is designed to enhance safety and traffic flow on the busy road that runs through Randolph, and serves as a commuter route to and from Morristown, the County College of Morris and Route 10 in Roxbury.
