MILLBURN, NJ - The stretch of roadway near Millburn High School is about to get a whole lot smoother in the coming weeks, as Essex County will start milling and paving on Upper Millburn Avenue starting early next month.

On or about Thursday, Oct. 3, Upper Millburn Avenue will be resurfaced and paved from Douglas Street all the way up to Morris Turnpike.

In order to to minimize the impact on Millburn High School, which sits on the street, paving will be done overnight between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. throughout the month of October.
