Beginning on September 22, 2021, New Jersey American Water will begin water main replacement/upgrades on Southgate Road. The roadway will be closed between Ryder Way and South Street from 7AM until 5PM, Monday through Friday, for approximately six weeks.
Due to the nature of the work involved, the amount of workers and machinery required, full road closure will be necessary to optimize the safety of the work crews and motoring public alike.
A clearly marked detour route will be posted and maintained by the contractor. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through the work zone. Access to residences, including deliveries and other services, in the work zone will be allowed as much as possible.
Residents whose homes are accessed from Southgate Road and those accessing the Murray Hill Train Station should give yourselves extra time to navigate the detours in place.
Thank you for your cooperation!
