TA-2016 Morristown MLK Promenade Transit Connection
Transportation Alternatives (TAP) Project
Town of Morristown, Morris County, NJ

Preliminary Engineering Phase • Virtual Public Information Center


The purpose of this project is to improve the overall pedestrian experience by improving connectivity between  the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Promenade project, Spring Street, and the train station as well as the surrounding area.  The project’s Design and Construction cost is funded by federal funds administered through NJDOT Local Aid Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program and Design Assistance. The project limits span along the entirety of Water Street, and portions of Spring Street  and Martin Luther King Avenue.  Proposed improvements include sidewalk, streetscape and landscaping improvements, new lighting, signage, and pavement markings, intersection and traffic signal improvements.  It is anticipated that design will be completed in 2023, with construction to occur in 2024.


Federal and State regulations pertaining to the protection of cultural resources, referred to, respectively, as the Section 106 and the New Jersey Register of Historic Places Act processes, require that Morristown and NJDOT take into account the effect of proposed projects upon cultural resources eligible to or listed on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places.
