Road Work Sign NJDOT (cropped)Please be advised that Chatham Rd from River Rd to Morris County Line in Summit will be under construction on or about Thursday, July 13 2017. It is anticipated that the work will take approximately 2 nights to complete, weather permitting. Affected residents and businesses should be aware that there may be mobilization and prep work on the part of the contractor about a week or two in advance of the actual start day. This activity should have little or no impact on local traffic.

The work being performed will consist of various road improvements, such as milling, paving, and striping of the road. Due to the nature of the work involved, the amount of men and machinery required, full road closure will be necessary in the area of work to optimize the safety of the work crews and motoring public alike. The road will be closed overnight from approximately 7:00 PM until 6:00 AM the following morning.

A clearly marked detour route will be established and maintained by County forces. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through at all times. Access to residences, including deliveries and other services, will be allowed as much as possible. Please note that parking will be prohibited on Chatham Rd within the work zone during the operation of milling and paving. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.

The County recognizes the inconvenience that any road construction may cause and apologizes for any difficulties encountered. The County shall make every effort to have the work completed as soon as possible.

Should you have any traffic questions, please call our Traffic Bureau at (908) 789-6011 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. If any emergencies should arise, please contact your Municipal Police Department.
