Mt. Freedom Development Moving Along in 2014

RANDOLPH, NJ- John Lovell, Randolph’s Town Manager, reported on the progress of development in Mt. Freedom. Residents will be updated by Randolph TAP as more specific dates are released on actual construction times and detours.

According to Lovell, “Morris County will be starting the ‘Sussex Turnpike Project’ this year. Major improvements are charted for four intersections including at Dover Chester, at Calais, at Millbrook, and at West Hanover/Brookside. Much of the project will be concentrated between Millbrook and West Hanover including the realignment of West Hanover with Brookside Road. The project also includes some sidewalk enhancements in Mt. Freedom including an extension along Sussex from the ACME to Harvey, which will benefit Mt. Freedom Jewish Center congregants. Traffic flow will improve as a result of this long anticipated set of improvements.

The Mt Freedom area will also benefit from several Randolph Township public sewer projects designed to collect sewage in Mt Freedom and flow the material to the Butterworth Sewer Treatment Plant in Morris Township. Two phases are completed including the development of dry lines under Sussex Turnpike and the just completed upgrade of an old sewer interceptor in Morris Township.

In 2014, a pump station is being constructed at Randolph’s town boundary with Morris Township, with a main constructed down Sussex Turnpike in Morris Township to connect to the interceptor work which was completed last week. The final phase of the project is the installation of a sewer pump station on Old Shunpike and force main installation along the Old Shunpike, combined with an upgrade of an existing pump station on Musiker Avenue in Randolph.

With the completion of this final project in 2015, the Mount Freedom area will have access to public sewers and plenty of future capacity allowing for the redevelopment of the old commercial strip along Sussex Turnpike. According to Lovell, “Real estate redevelopment possibilities could bring a new character to the area; hopefully the long anticipated sense of a village center will result.”

Sussex Turnpike improvements are being funded by Morris County and the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

The sewer improvements are being funded by Randolph Townships sewer fund with some financial participation from the developer of the Westminster townhouse project.
