The Morristown Council still needs more information on drainage along Interstate 287 before it gives permission to the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to resurface and renovate a portion of the highway that runs through the town.
The council voted last week once again to table the resolution that would allow the project to take place, instead calling for a hydrology study that would give the town a much clearer picture of the flooding and water movement issues along the interstate.
Flooding issues have been one of a few main concerns preventing the project from getting off the ground. , flood mitigation along the highway was deliberated upon alongside the cleanup of overgrowth on several of the highway’s exits and whether or not to allow a noise waiver that would let construction crews work on the project at night in an attempt to reduce traffic delays.
The resolution is expected to come up for another potential vote at the council’s next regular meeting on June 26.
