Beginning in mid-June, NJ American Water Company will be replacing a water main on Springfield Avenue – between Central Avenue and Maple Street.
Due to the volume of traffic on Springfield Avenue, this work will be done during the overnight hours. The work will be conducted Monday through Friday nights, starting at 8 PM and finishing by 5 AM each morning.
The work will begin on Springfield Avenue at Central Avenue and work east to Maple Street. NJ American estimates they can replace 200-300 feet of water main each night.
The overall project will be completed by the end of October. The actual water main replacement is expected to be completed by the beginning of September with the individual water service tie-in to each house completed by the end of October.
Once the project is completed, Springfield Avenue will be repaved from the center line to the curb on the side where the main is replaced. Also, each intersection will be repaved curb-to-curb.
Residents in the affected areas will receive a door tag approximately a week before the work is to commence. However, all residents should be aware of the project as there will undoubtedly be traffic delays and detours during this period.
