Starting Wednesday, June 25, a mile-long stretch of Naughright Road in Washington Township will be closed for approximately two weeks for milling and resurfacing.
The roadway between Janet Drive and Nancy Terrace will be closed from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, Washington Township Police Lt. Doug Compton announced. Only residents and emergency equipment will be permitted to travel Naughright Road during the closure.
Police officers will be stationed at either end of the closure throughout the duration of the project, which is being completed by Top Line Construction Corporation of Somerville.
The Naughright Road closure is one of three ongoing projects in Washington Township, with the other two replacing bridges leading into Warren County.
The Newburgh Road Bridge project began Tuesday, with a full closure of the roadway that connects Schooley’s Mountain – and Washington Township – to Rt. 57 in Mansfield Township. At the same time, a full bridge replacement on Rt. 46 is underway. That portion of roadway connects Washington Township to Hackettstown.
While no dates or specifics have been made, the Morris County Board of Freeholders said earlier this year plans were in the works to resurface sections of Schooley’s Mountain Road, Bartley Road, and East and West Mill Roads.
