Route 206 Summary

For almost twenty years and prior  to the construction of the current Shop Rite Plaza, Byram Township Councils recognized the need for improvements to the traffic flow on Route 206 from Acorn Street to north of High Glen Drive.

The time table for construction did not allow the state to offer design until about the year 2000.  Since that time, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has been working with Byram Township and Sussex County to design improvements to Route 206 that will not only improve traffic safety but will also have the effect of a boulevard.

The project should soon become “shovel-ready” and be added to the projects under construction for the NJDOT.
