Powerville Road in Boonton Twp. and James Street in Morris Twp. Set to Go

Morris County’s 2019 county road resurfacing projects are set to begin this week, weather permitting, starting with the paving of sections of Powerville Road in Boonton Township and James Street in Morris and Harding townships.


Also pending is paving on already approved and contracted projects on Boonton Turnpike in Lincoln Park, a segment of Littleton Road in Parsippany, and a half-mile of Mt. Arlington Blvd. in Roxbury.


In addition, the Board of Freeholders, at their last meeting, passed resolutions to allocate funds to pave portions of the following roads (starting the bid and contract process):

  • Long Hill: New Vernon Road
  • Long Hill: Division Avenue
  • Mendham Borough: Bernardsville Road and Hilltop Road
  • Mount Olive: Drakesdale Road


“Keeping our county road network in excellent shape is of key importance to our residents and businesses, and to ensuring Morris County’s place as a first class, top-rated county,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.


“We want to be ready to move as quickly as possible to bid and award these contracts,’’ added Freeholder Stephen Shaw, who is the county governing board’s liaison on roads and bridges.  


The county’s 2019 resurfacing effort will cover more than two-dozen county roads in 23 towns, totaling more than 25 miles of paving.

Bids are expected to go out soon on four other anticipated projects:

  • Randolph and Chester Twps.: North Road
  • Pequannock: The Boulevard
  • Wharton: North Main Street
  • Wharton: East and West Dewey Avenues
