Bridge work is expected to begin on or about Wednesday, December 1, weather permitting.
Due to structural damage, the bridge on Short Hills Avenue from Woodstone Circle to Forest Drive in Millburn/Springfield is scheduled to undergo a long term closure beginning July 16. Concrete barriers will be placed across the roadway at both ends of the structure to prevent errant vehicles from entering the work area.
A detour route will be signed for the duration of the road closure as Short Hills Avenue will not be accessible for thru traffic into Springfield. Please plan accordingly! For more information and a detailed map please click here.
The project, which is being run by Union County, will completely replace the existing bridge with a new bridge.
