WEST ORANGE, NJ - Two new pedestrian bridges will be installed as part of improvements planned for the Orange Reservoir.

Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo and Orange Mayor Dwayne Warren this week announced plans to install the bridges and complete the walking path around the Orange Reservoir in the Essex County South Mountain Recreation Complex. Plans were first mentioned over the summer when the Paddle Boat Pavilion opened.  

The upgrades will create a 1.7-mile pathway around the reservoir.
