Mill Road Bridge Project to Start Mon, Feb 10th

Mill Road Bridge

Work is scheduled to start next week on a six-month project to replace the heavily used Mill Road bridge in Morris Township. The project will require a detour that will direct motorists to Lake Valley Road, Lake Road, and Burnham Road to Hanover Avenue.

Replacement is needed due to severe rusting of the beams and section loss which prompted the need for replacement.

Mill Road bridge is a single-span, steel beam structure that is 30-feet long, with a 38-foot wide deck. Built in 1957, it carries about 5,000 vehicles daily.

The proposed replacement structure will consist of reinforced concrete foundations supporting pre-stressed concrete beams, with a reinforced concrete deck. The bridge will have stone faced reinforced concrete parapets, plus sidewalks and stained guide rails along the approaches.

The Contractor for this project is CMS Construction of Plainfield, NJ. The total bid contract amount is $1,025,590, and is jointly funded by the state Department of Transportation and Morris County.
