MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn Township issued an update on the Douglas Street and Millburn Avenue construction with information from Arterial, LLC regarding additional 2 feet of curb on the north side of Millburn Avenue.
Street trees in 4 ft. planting beds can be provided along the proposed curbline while maintaining a 5.5 ft. sidewalk. If the curbs remain at their current width, the trees slated for planting would need to be eliminated from the project.
If the current curb is left in place, the inlet in front of Gotham would require relocation and reconstruction.
There are several driveways located along the northern side. The additional 2 ft. allows for properly-sloped driveway aprons and a 4 ft. clear zone to make this area ADA-compliant.
*The goal of the Option B compromise is to allow the Township the flexibility to return to 2 lanes of traffic, if desired in the future. The additional 2 feet on the north side curb line and 38 foot curb to curb width of the designed roadway would allow for that flexibility.
