Lane Closures Expected at Center Grove and Quaker Church Road for Six Months

Starting Tuesday, May 28, safety improvements will be made to the intersection of Center Grove Road (County Route 670) and Quaker Church Road in Randolph Township. 

Construction is expected to last six months, with lane closures from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily. Motorists should expect delays and are advised to plan alternate routes during these hours. The schedule may change due to weather or other factors.

Morris County initiated this project to enhance safety and traffic operations at the intersection that includes traffic signal replacements, pedestrian signals with countdown timers and Americans with Disabilities Act compliant curb ramps.  Also to be included are crosswalks, sidewalks and overhead street lighting.

Additionally, paving, curbing, striping and widening at the southwest corner of the intersection will be in the scope of work. The project limits extend on Center Grove Road from Route 10 to 300 feet north of the intersection, and on Quaker Church Road, 150 feet in both directions.

This project is being funded through the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority’s (NJTPA) Local Safety Program and managed by Morris County. J.C. Contracting has been hired as the contractor to complete this project.

The NJTPA is the federally authorized Metropolitan Planning Organization for seven million people in the 13-county northern New Jersey region. The Local Safety Program is a federally funded program established by the NJTPA, in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration and New Jersey Department of Transportation, to advance safety initiatives on county and local roads.
