Lane closures to begin on Route 46 in Mount Olive Twp.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced the beginning of a pavement preservation project on Route 46 between Stiger Street in Hackettstown, Warren County and Sandshore Road/Naughright Road in Mount Olive Township, Morris County.

The work will begin at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 16, until 6:00 a.m., the following morning, and continuing nightly Monday through Friday, a portion of the right lane of Route 46 westbound will be closed overnight near Sandshore Road/Naughright Road for curb and guiderail work.  The area of this closure will shift as the project progresses.

At least one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction at all times. This stage of the project is expected to be complete by fall 2019.

The $8 million dollar state-funded project will extend the pavement life, improve safety and enhance ride quality for motorists.  In addition to milling and paving, the project will make drainage improvements and ADA-upgrades to sidewalks and intersections.

The project is expected to be complete by fall 2020. 

Variable messaging signs are being utilized to provide advance notification to the motoring public of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work. NJDOT will provide more information before any lane closures are scheduled.
