New Jersey Resumes Non-Essential Construction, Are Permit Extensions Next?

Author: Donald M. PepeDate: May 21, 2020

On May 13, 2020, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed an Executive Order lifting the state’s ban on non-essential construction. However, it will not be business as usual — the construction industry must adopt strict infection control measures.

In additional good news for the New Jersey construction industry, the New Jersey Legislature has approved a bill that would extend permits approved prior to the COVID-19-related state of emergency until at least six months after the state of emergency ends. The legislation, Assembly Bill 3919, now awaits Gov. Phil Murphy’s signature.
