MADISON, NJ - Due to a water main construction project on Ridgedale Avenue running behind schedule, a regional detour plan has been designed for the month of September that will affect those traveling to both Madison High School and the Central Avenue School.
Ridgedale Avenue between Burnet Road and Park Avenue will be closed--accessible to local traffic only.
High School Parents/Students:
Expect detours in the area. Travel to the high cchool by using Central Avenue or Burnet Road. The area of the high school will not be occupied by the water main contractor after the opening of school, however the county of Morris will also be performing a paving project on Ridgedale Avenue (north of Central Avenue).
Central Avenue School Parents:
Expect detours in the area. Access to Walnut Street will be severely limited. Greenwood Avenue or Brittin Street are the preferred drop-off and pickup locations for the duration of the Ridgedale Avenue Water Main project. It is encouraged that students walk or ride a bicycle to school where possible. A police officer will be on-site during morning receiving hours and afternoon discharge hours at those preferred locations to assist crossing guards with any traffic issues
The water main construction contractor anticipates completion by the end of September.
