MILLBURN, NJ - with the end of the project almost in sight, Millburn Township will be closing a portion of Old Short Hills Road on Monday night to facilitate work on the road.

According to the township, Old Short Hills Road will undergo a hard road closure between 8:00 p.m – 6:00 a.m on Aug. 26 between the intersections of Jefferson Avenue and Farley Place. During the work, a detour will be noticed at Farley Place.

Rather than close the road over the course of several days, causing traffic, Millburn made the decision to close the road overnight to ensure that work will be completed prior to the opening of school.

Residents are advised to plan an alternate route during this time frame. Emergency responders in town have also been notified of the closure as well.
