MORRISTOWN, NJ - Pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic on Court Street in Morristown will change for thirty days, said government officials.
Beginning Monday July 23, Court Street will be closed due to a paving and sidewalk project. The busy street, which is the hub of county government and the state court system, will undergo a full reconstruction of both sidewalks from Ann Street to Washington Street, followed by the repaving of the street, said officials in a press release. The curb and sidewalk will be removed and replaced on the courthhouse side of the street, from the bridge that connects the two buildings down to Washington Street. Once completed, the contractor will move to the Administration and Records Building side of Court Street, where the curb and sidewalk will be replaced from Ann Street to Washington Street.
The new sidewalks will match the adjacent downtown Morristown’s pattern, and will have street lighting that also matches Morristown’s design. During the project, parking will be prohibited Court Street.
The road will be open to one lane of traffic during contractor working hours on weekdays and fully open at all other times during the reconstruction of the sidewalk. Upon completion of the curb and sidewalk work, the contractor will schedule a four-day full closure of Court Street (including a weekend) to remove the current asphalt and repave and stripe the street. The cost of the project is $504,372.
