DENVILLE, N.J. - Good news for Denville motorists: Morris County said on Wednesday that the railroad crossing work on Hibernia Avenue is proceeding faster than expected.

County spokesman Lawrence Ragonese, in a press release, said Hibernia Road "may open a day early." That means Friday, he said.

Currently the road is closed from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. as a new rail crossing is being installed between Oak Street and Vanderhoof Avenue.
