MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn Township issued an update on the Complete Streets construction happening at Douglas Street and Millburn Avenue.
The sidewalk on the south side of Millburn Avenue near Spring Street is open to pedestrians. On the north side of Millburn Avenue the sidewalk from the Wells Fargo driveway to Spring Street is open to pedestrians.
Concrete has been poured on Douglas Street at the corner with Wells Fargo, and the contractor has begun forming the curb at that intersection. The corner at Wells Fargo will be closed to pedestrian traffic over the weekend; pedestrians can cross Millburn Avenue using the pedestrian island. Vehicular traffic will remain open.
Construction is slated to begin in August at the corner of Douglas Street and Millburn Avenue, as approved by the Township Committee. This will conclude construction associated with Phase One of Complete Streets that was publicly bid in Spring 2016. The scope of work is detailed in the Option B diagram below. Work will include increasing the pedestrian refuge island to accommodate shorter crossing distances, shifting the curb on Douglas Street 2.5 feet to accommodate an ADA-compliant curb ramp, and adjustments made to the corner of Millburn Avenue and Spring Street for additional turn maneuverability to facilitate movement to the new Washington School.
