Somerset County's road contractor will begin inlet and manhole repairs on South Maple Avenue Wednesday June 20th in advance of the road repaving this summer. Also, the water company project is still ongoing. Exercise caution while driving through the area.
New Jersey American Water is preparing to replace approximately 8,000 feet of aging water main along South Maple Avenue (from Hill Top Road to Prospect Avenue). The project also includes replacing six fire hydrants and 33 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. Weather permitting, the contractor, CRJ Contracting, will begin during the week of April 23rd, 2018. The project will be completed in approximately 3 months. Work hours will be at night from 8pm to 5am, Monday evening through Saturday morning. Detours will be in place during these work hours. Please follow all posted detours and signage. Work outside of these hours is not expected unless required to maintain project schedule. Once the water main is replaced, the road surface will be repaved and restored by Somerset County.
