Route 202 overnight lane closures for resurfacing project begins tonight

Work includes inlet repair and camera installation

MORRISTOWN — New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced overnight lane closures in Morristown to resurface approximately one mile of Route 202 in both directions in Morristown.

Beginning at 9:00 p.m., tonight, Monday, August 27, until 5:00 a.m. the next day, and continuing nightly until complete, NJDOT’s contractor, Schifano Construction Corp., is scheduled to close up to two lanes of Route 202 and shift traffic in both directions between North Park Place Road and Frederick Street in Morristown to mill and pave the roadway. The project is designed to minimize impacts to traffic and maintain one lane of traffic in both directions at all times.

The $420,000 million dollar state-funded project will mill and pave the roadway, rebuild storm water manholes and inlets, and install traffic signal cameras. The project is expected to be complete by the end of the week.

Construction signs are being utilized to provide advance notification to the motoring public of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work. NJDOT will provide more information before any lane closures are scheduled.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website for construction updates and real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info or on the NJDOT Facebook page.
