County Road Paving Set to Start in Florham Park

Bridge Work Continues in Mountain Lakes; Highview Avenue, Hanover Township is also scheduled


MORRIS COUNTY —  The first phase of a 1.1 mile milling and paving project is expected to start next week on North Passaic Street in Florham Park and Chatham Borough, while milling and paving should start next week on Comly Road/Ryerson Road in Lincoln Park and Pequannock.

At the same time, extensive drainage, sidewalk and bridge approach work is continuing on two major roads in Wharton – East & West Dewey Avenue and North Main Street – with paving likely in early September.

Some other county road projects set for the near future are New Vernon Road in Long Hill and Dover-Rockaway Road in Rockaway Township, both 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. Click here for a complete list.

On the bridge improvement front, work is continuing on the Black River Road bridge in Washington Township and on the Crane Road bridge in Mountain Lakes. Also, bids are being advertised for the Mill Road Bridge replacement project to be done later this year in Morris Township, and bids will be advertised in early September for the planned East Blackwell Street bridge project in Dover.

“Maintaining our road and bridge infrastructure is vital to our residents and businesses, and helps make Morris County one of the best places to live and work in New Jersey,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Stephen Shaw. “We will continue to work closely with our municipalities on these projects to minimize inconvenience to motorists.’’
