RANDOLPH, NJ- The highly anticipated and long-awaited funding for the roadwork project at the intersection Sussex in Hanover is about to be released.

On Sept. 8, the department of transportation for the state of New Jersey authorized funds to be released for this project in Randolph Township.  A formal letter from the department of transportation along with the associated agreements and documents are being sent out.

Once the documents are received, the County offices can then place the project out for bid.  If the official paperwork from the state arrives sometime next week,  then the bid should be able to go out immediately. This would allow time for the bid to be awarded late fall.

According to Township manager Steven Mountain, this official release of funds is an important step forward for all the other initiatives in that immediate area surrounding the intersection.  Mountain stated, "Everything else triggers off the funding for this, in regards to the anticipated road project at that intersection."

The intention now is to get the project started by relocating utilities at the end of the winter and early spring.  If everything goes smooth with that process, the hope is that roadwork will then begin in late spring or early summer.  Further updates will be provided when more information is released.
