CHATHAM, NJ - Fairmount Avenue will be closed from Longwood Avenue to Southern Boulevard for the next two weeks and all traffic from Fairmount will be diverted down Longwood to Lafayette.

For this reason, the Chatham Township Police have instituted a no parking order on Longwood for the next two weeks. Police will be ticketing cars parked on Longwood.

The police department has suggested finding alternate routes to avoid Lafayette towards Southern Boulevard and Southern itself. Traffic will be significantly backed up due to rerouting of traffic from Fairmount.

It is suggested that motorists use Watchung Avenue to River Road to head in the direction of New Providence.
