The township will start several paving projects over the next few weeks.
In all cases, one lane of the affected roads will be kept open with alternating traffic. The Police Department will be providing traffic control and will be giving priority to emergency vehicles and school buses, according to the township.
Exact dates for the projects are not available yet, but the township will update its website.
On the second or third week of September, the township is going to mill and repave several streets (see local streets map for details):
- River Road (Route 202 to Vreeland Avenue)
- Maple Avenue (Bloomfield Avenue to New Maple Avenue)
- Adamary Place (entire length)
- Rathbun Road (entire length except culvert crossing area)
- Orchard Drive (entire length)

Later in September, Morris County will mill and repave Route 202 (Main Road) between Fulton Street at the Boonton border and Nowak Lane near the entrance ramp to I-287 South (see Rt 202 map for details). This project is estimated to start on Sept. 22 and last for about one week. The work will run from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The township suggested residents detour around it as “this is normally a heavily travelled route.
Also, if time and weather cooperates, the following streets in the area of the recently completed Plausha Park water main project will be milled and repaved this year, said the township:
- Forest Place (entire length)
- Redding Place (Barney Lane to Forest Hill Road)
