Route 46 westbound right lane to be closed for drainage improvement work in Mount Olive Twp and Washington Twp

MORRIS COUNTY, NJ – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Thursday announced the right lane on Route 46 westbound will be closed for two weeks between Sand Shore Road/Naughright Road in Mount Olive Township and Drakestown Road in Washington Township as the pavement preservation project advances.

Beginning at 7:00 p.m., Friday, April 10, NJDOT’s contractor Crisdel Group, will close the right lane on Route 46 westbound between Sand Shore Road/Naughright Road and Drakestown Road to set up construction barriers in preparation for drainage improvements including pipe and inlet installation. This lane closure will remain in place for approximately two
weeks.

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 precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website 511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information.
