UNION, NJ – The NJDOT has scheduled roadwork to begin on Morris Avenue on Monday, April 10, from the Springfield border to Caldwell Avenue. 

According to Township officials, this is the first section of Morris Avenue to be resurfaced.  Work on the second section, from Lehigh to North Avenues, will begin in mid-August.  Roadwork between Caldwell and Lehigh Avenues is scheduled for 2018.
