The county also has targeted two major intersections for paving, including the county’s busiest intersection at Columbia Turnpike and Park Avenue in Hanover and Morris townships, plus the Myrtle Avenue and Wootton Street intersection in Boonton.  


This county work is in addition to any local or state road-improvement projects. 


Some of the more extensive work will include portions of Boonton Turnpike in Lincoln Park, Mt. Arlington Boulevard in Roxbury, East Mill Road in Washington Township, Littleton Road in Parsippany, Jacksonville Road in Pequannock, West Dewey Avenue in Roxbury and Jefferson, South Morris Street in Dover, Boulevard in Pequannock, and South Street in Morristown.  


For 2018, the freeholders have allocated $1.1 million in the county’s capital budget for paving, combined with nearly $7.9 million in anticipated state funding to finance paving projects.


“It is extremely important to properly maintain our county road network in a first-rate county like Morris County,’’ said Freeholder John Cesaro, the county governing board’s liaison on public works and roads. 


“Maintaining our infrastructure is vital to our residents, visitors, medical and educational institutions, and businesses, and is a key factor in our high quality of life.’’

To expedite projects, the freeholders over the past few years have approved short-term financing to allow the county to bid projects early in the season and move full-speed-ahead during the spring and summer on a full slate of road repaving.


Roads that will be done in Montville Township are as follows:
