In Mendham Borough and Mendham Township, the county anticipates making improvements to Hilltop and Bernardsville roads (one continuous road but the name changes at the municipal border) an early 2020 project.
Utility work performed earlier this year by the New Jersey American Water Company has resulted in uneven pavement on that roadway, which runs from Main Street to the Somerset County line.
However, the portion of the road disturbed by the utility project must completely settle before it can be resurfaced. During the interim months, the county and utility company will continue to assess the pavement and make necessary repairs, when required.
“We know that residents in those towns have inquired about getting their roads repaired and brought up to the standards we expect in Morris County,’’ said Freeholder Stephen Shaw. “We want to let you know that we are aware of the situation and intend to make upgrades to those roads as soon possible in 2020.’’
