Ridgedale and Hanover Avenue at Hanover/Morris Twp. Border Starts Monday
The conclusion of Morris County’s 2017 road resurfacing program is scheduled to commence next week with the start of work on three intersections – including two of the county’s busiest interchanges at East Hanover Avenue and Ridgedale Avenue in Hanover and Morris Township, and at Columbia Turnpike and Park Avenue in the same two towns.
However, county engineers are cautioning that cold temperatures could delay the work, or even push the intersection work to the 2018-paving season, especially since the work is planned to be done during colder evening and overnight hours.
The public will be notified if the work is delayed.
This is the current milling and paving intersections’ schedule:
Nov. 6 and 7: East Hanover Avenue and Ridgedale Avenue;
Nov. 8-9: Columbia Turnpike and Park Avenue;
Nov. 10: Myrtle Avenue and Wootton Street.
All work is planned for 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. to minimize traffic delays. The contractor for this jointly bid project is Tilcon. The bid price for all three intersections is $383,300.
“We’d like to thank county residents in advance for their patience in dealing with the temporary inconveniences that will be caused by these intersection projects,’’ said Morris County Freeholder John Cesaro, the county governing board’s liaison on roads and bridges.
“This work is necessary to deal with deteriorating road conditions at these extremely important intersections. There is no good time to do it, so we have scheduled the work to be done at nights and early mornings, and will work closely with our contractors and local police to cause minimum inconvenience,’’ Freeholder Cesaro added.
