Road Work Ongoing in Chatham, Florham Park, Long Hill, Mt. Olive, and  Roxbury   

A series of county road paving and improvement projects are underway across Morris County, including work on a 2.1-mile segment of road that runs from East Mill Road/Route 513 in Washington Township to Route 206 in Chester.

Preliminary work also is ongoing on North Passaic Street in Chatham Borough and Florham Park, New Vernon Road in Long Hill, Drakesdale Road in Mount Olive, and Landing Road in Roxbury.Road work sign

Milling and paving work has been completed on Highview Avenue in Hanover, Mendham Road in Mendham Township, North Main Street and East-West Dewey Avenue in Wharton, and is nearing completion on Mount Olive/Flanders Road in Mount Olive and is virtually done on Dover-Rockaway Road in Rockaway Township.

The county also is moving toward construction soon on Canfield Avenue in Mine Hill, a small section of Littleton Road in Parsippany, and Mount Arlington Blvd. in Roxbury.

In addition, bids have been advertised for work on Quaker Church Road and Randolph Avenue in Randolph, the final two 2019 county paving projects, with work expected in late October.

This work is all part of the Board of Freeholders aggressive targeting of some 30 miles of county roads for upgrading this summer and fall. The county roadwork is in addition to local and state road projects.

On the bridge improvement front, work continues on the Crane Road bridge in Mountain Lakes. Bids have been received for the Mill Road Bridge replacement project in Morris Township and for the planned East Blackwell Street bridge project in Dover.

The county also expects to move ahead with two more bridge projects this fall: Chestnut Terrace bridge in Rockaway Township and Waterloo Road bridge at the Netcong and Stanhope border.

“We are working hard to keep our commitment to properly maintaining our road and bridge infrastructure in Morris County,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Stephen Shaw. “We intend to work through the paving season, before the weather turns colder, to complete our list for 2019.’’
