Western Avenue Road Closure



The Township of Morris will be resuming work relating to the culvert replacement on Western Avenue on July 24, 2017. The remaining work will consist of replacing the existing concrete box culvert and roadway reconstruction in the vicinity of Molly Stark Drive.


Prior to construction, detour signs will be placed in the area to re-route traffic. The Township’s contractor, Underground Utilities Corp., will have their equipment and personnel on-site to resume work on July 24th and are expected to complete the work on or about August 25th. Inclement weather conditions may influence the work schedule.


In order to complete the work in a safe and efficient manner, Western Ave. will be physically closed in the vicinity of Molly Stark Drive to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic for the duration of the culvert replacement starting on July 24th. Access will be maintained to all local businesses and for local area residents at all times during the closure, but no through traffic will be possible on Western Ave. between Searing Ave. and Locust St. following the removal of the culvert. The Township realizes that the work will be disruptive and will make every effort to complete the work as quickly as possible.
