MORRIS COUNTY, NJ - The next phase of Morris County’s 2017 road resurfacing program is set to start the week of August 7 with a 2.8-mile paving project on Berkshire Valley Road in Jefferson. The project will run from Blue Road to near Manor Drive. The project includes storm basin work, ADA ramps, milling, paving, and striping. The contractor, Topline Construction of Somerville, has 20 working days (in good weather) to complete the work. Work will take place between 7am and 4pm.
The resurfacing of a 3.4-mile segment of Valley Road in Long Hill will occur in September. The road is sufferingfrom extensive wear and a water company project that tore up parts of the road.
Overall, the Morris County Board of Freeholders’ aggressive county road resurfacing effort has targeted upgrades to some 32 miles of county roads across 15 municipalities at a total cost of about $9 million in 2017.
“We are committed to maintaining the integrity of our county road network, which is vital to our residents and businesses,’’ said Freeholder John Cesaro. “A first-rate road network is a key factor in helping to maintain the high quality of life for our county residents.’’
