Collyer Lane just south of Basking Ridge Center will remain closed for two to three more weeks for a major road project, with the timing dependent on weather, township officials said last week.

Bernards Police Lt. Ted Reese said access to the police department and municipal offices is expected to remain open through nearly all of the construction period through the end of August. He said access may be blocked for about one-half day later during the project.

Reese said the road overhaul involves milling and paving the roadway, as well as new sidewalks and curbing.

The project was publicly bid and a contract was awarded to Midwest Construction for $196,451 at the June 26 Township Committee meeting, said Tom Timko, township engineer. The roadwork began last Monday.

That amount was offset by a state grant of $175,000 for the project, added Bruce McArthur, township administrator.
