The New Jersey Department of Transportation has the Springfield section of Morris Avenue in their sights.  Construction on Morris Avenue, or New Jersey Route 124, was scheduled to begin in October 2012, prior to Hurricane Sandy.  The project was canceled last year and the work has been rescheduled for this month.

The Department of Transportation planned to begin milling and paving on Monday, March 18, 2013 with a worst case scenario of March 25, 2013.  However, according to a Facebook update from the Township, the work has been rescheduled again with a start date of Friday, March 22, 2013 due to “colder than expected temperatures”.

The portion of Route 124 that will be under construction is from Milepost 10.50 to Milepost 11.10, or Short Hills Avenue to Mountain Avenue, in both directions.  The Department of Transportation plans to close two lanes at a time in each direction because of the absence of a shoulder, center median and the heavy equipment necessary.  The traffic will be shifted to the open lane in the other direction creating one-lane travel in both directions.

The work will be performed between the hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
