CLARK, NJ - Motorists continue to see progress being made on the Madison Hill Road bridge as crews near a targeted July, 2017 completion date. 

It will have been nearly 18 months since work first began on the bridge, in February 2016.  The Union County project was originally slated to last eight months

"The project was rescheduled from its original completion date of November 2016 due to delays associated with the governor’s executive order stopping all NJDOT funded projects last summer," Union County Communications Director Sebastian D'Elia said.

The project stalled in August, 2016 and the bridge remained in a state of disrepair until work resumed in November, 2016.

D'Elia said remobilization of the contractor and delays associated with winter weather contributed to the extension to the targeted July, 2017 completion date.

Clark Councilman Brian Toal cautioned motorists to stay alert to changing road and lane conditions as the work continues.
