ROXBURY, NJ – As promised in January, Morris County is giving some TLC to potholed, crack-ridden West Dewey Avenue and Berkshire Valley Road.
The road surface, which has been milled, will receive a fresh coat of pavement next week. The paving is scheduled to run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, officials said.
The section of West Dewey Avenue in Roxbury that is getting a new facelift runs about three quarters of a mile between Berkshire Valley Road and the Wharton border. The county is going to continue paving down Berkshire Valley Road all the way to Route 46 in Kenvil.
Roxbury police said they will be on hand to deal with the inevitable traffic flow problems.
The township is also busy paving roads this summer. Earlier this year, Roxbury Public Works Director Rick Blood said the township wants to pave about 8.5 miles of township roads before year’s end, a record amount of resurfacing that will cost almost $2.1 million. About $600,000 of that cost will come from grants, he noted.
This year also saw the state resurface about a mile of Route 46 west of the intersection with Route 10.
