Scotch Plains – Fanwood Pipeline Improvement Advisory dated 4/7/15

On Thursday (4/9/15) and Friday (4/10/15) of this week, the contractor will be digging several test holes in Park Avenue to determine the depth of the pipe - some traffic delays may occur but the roadway will remain open.  Starting Monday April 13th, the replacement of the pipe on the Park Avenue section will begin.  The hours are 8pm to 4am as was done last year when NJAW replaced the water main through Fanwood's downtown.  Both the County and Fanwood will not allow the work to take place during the day because of Park Middle School and no easy detour route for trucks.  During the night work, the detour route will be East Second St to Terrill Rd to Midway Ave.  This section is expected to be complete by April 17th.
