Please watch for sidewalk repair taking place on Plainfield Avenue. Handicap ramps along Plainfield Avenue are being added or reconstructed in advance of the planned nighttime milling and paving project that will start in about a month.
Around June 21, re-construction of the Mountain Ave bridge, where Mountain Ave intersects Sherbrook Drive, will begin. This work will be done by Union County. Mountain Ave, from Plainfield to Hillcrest, will be CLOSED to all thru traffic for a period of approximately 60 days in the area of work during the 4-month long project to optimize the safety of the work crews and motoring public alike.
The contractor will establish and maintain a clearly marked detour route. Emergency vehicles and pedestrian traffic will not be allowed through the work zone during the full road closure and we ask that residents please plan accordingly. Access to residences, including deliveries and other services, in the work zone will be allowed as much as possible. Residents can view the planned detour route now on the County of Union Bureau of Traffic Safety & Maintenance website.
Should you have any traffic questions, please call the contractor directly at (201) 440-1118 during normal business hours. If any emergencies should arise, please contact your municipal Police Department.
This work is being performed by Union County. Regular updates for the various phases of construction and their impact on traffic along this stretch of Mountain Avenue will be posted on the County of Union Bureau of Traffic Safety & Maintenance website if and when they become available.
