Bids have been awarded on each of those projects and pre-construction meetings have been held to set the dates and times for that work to be done. That information will be available soon.

County contractors, meanwhile, continue to work on a 2.1-mile segment of road that runs from East Mill Road in Washington Township to Route 206 in Chester, and are milling and paving North Passaic Street in Chatham Borough and Florham Park, and completing a small segment of Littleton Road in Parsippany.

When the work is completed, the county will have improved nearly 30 miles of roads across Morris County, as part of an aggressive 2019 effort to maintain the county’s road infrastructure.
