Old Short Hills Rd. will undergo a hard road closure from 8:00pm – 6:00am on August 26th between the intersections of Jefferson Ave. and Farley Pl. A detour will be noticed at Farley Pl.

The Township is closing the road overnight to prevent multiple days of traffic impact during the day and to ensure that work will be completed prior to the opening of school.
