The Morris County Board of Freeholders has announced the 2017 list of county road paving projects that will target nearly 33 miles across 15 municipalities at a total cost of $9 million.

Listing of Road Paving in our Lake Community:

County Road # Road Name Miles Approximate Limits Municipality
699 Berkshire Valley Road 0.8 Blue Road to Solar Road Jefferson
699 Berkshire Valley Road 1.2 Solar Road to Center Road Jefferson
699 Berkshire Valley Road 0.8 Center Road to S of Manor Drive Jefferson
616 Mt. Arlington Boulevard 1.3 Landing Road to Auriemma Court Roxbury
619 Hillside Avenue 2.5 Eyland Avenue to Route 10 Roxbury

The Freeholders over the past four years have made the maintenance of the county’s 287-mile road network a priority issue, even committing county capital funds to paving last year despite a possibility that the Transportation Trust Fund stalemate might not yield state funds.

Morris Freeholders Announce 4th Consecutive Year of Enhanced Road Paving Schedule“We are very aware of the importance of properly maintaining 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.

“It is a key factor in maintaining the high quality of life for our residents, visitors, medical and educational institutions, and businesses,’’ Cesaro added.

Portions of county roads scheduled for paving in 2017 are located in Boonton, Boonton Township, Chatham Township, Dover, Hanover, Jefferson, Lincoln Park, Long Hill, Montville, Pequannock, Morristown, Morris Township, Morristown, Parsippany, Randolph, Roxbury, and  Washington Township. This effort is in addition to any local or state road-improvement projects.

“We want to assure county residents that the freeholder board is committed to this effort. To allow our roads to fall into disrepair would not be acceptable,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.

“We will make every effort to notify motorists in advance of upcoming road projects, to make sure required police presence and/or detours are in place, and that we cause the least disruption possible.’’
