Traffic Will Be Detoured April 5-7

An improvement project to the county’s Route 46 rail crossing in the Kenvil section of Roxbury Township, between Kenvil Avenue and Hillside Avenue (near Blue Ridge Lumber), is scheduled for this weekend, April 5-7.

Kenvil rail crossing

Construction should start on Friday, April 5, at 6 p.m. and continue through Sunday, April 7, at 6 a.m. During construction, traffic will be detoured. Additional signal work is scheduled on Monday, April 8, with minimal traffic disruption anticipated that day.

A detour will be in place on Route 46 during the weekend construction.  It will take traffic from Howard Boulevard to Route 10 to Canfield Avenue and back to Route. 46.

The rail crossing, which is used by the Dover and Rockaway River Railroad, has deteriorated and has uneven pavement. The work will consist of installing OMNI TraCast concrete panels at the site and repaving the approach roadway to the rail crossing.

The contractor is Tracks Unlimited LLC of Mountainside. The $144,460 contract will be jointly financed by the state Department of Transportation and Morris County.
