MILLBURN, NJ - The Township of Millburn issued a construction update on the final portion of Complete Streets phase 1 for the work completed as of October 6.

  • The curbing and sidewalk between Douglas St. to Spring St. has been poured and completed on both the north and south side of Millburn Ave.
  • Top soil has been placed in a majority of the planting beds along with street lights being installed.
  • Unnecessary cones have been removed from the construction site as work will continue on the pedestrian island. During this time, there will be no pedestrian access through the pedestrian island. Although the construction of the pedestrian island is complex, we do not anticipate any long term traffic impact or roadway impact.

Project Description

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.
