The county is planning on repaving Morris Avenue, and at the same time re-doing the traffic patterns to make it friendlier to pedestrians. Part of the project involves a quick test of what the new pattern might be from Ford Avenue up to where the road splits.
Tonight at the Morristown Town Council Meeting this resolution, just to do the test, is going to be discussed. While the test seems really sensible to me, I think there are a lot of people who live in the area that have strong feelings either way.
If you ride or walk on Morris Avenue, you might want to go tonight and throw in your 2 cents. The Meeting begins at 7.
Resolution No. R-75-10
RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE MORRIS COUNTY
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO TEST OUT A NEW
STRIPING PATTERN ON MORRIS AVENUE FROM 287 TO
(This plan does not involve bike lanes. It does involve taking out a lane of traffic and hopefully slowing traffic down to the posted 25 mph)
