Westfield Avenue Construction Switches to Overnight Hours on Monday

CLARK, NJ - The next phase of a major water main replacement project along Westfield Avenue will begin Monday night and stretch throughout the week, according to Lt. Michael Pollock of the Clark Police Department.

Crews will tackle the bend in Westfield Avenue from just west of Bartell Place toward Brant Avenue, the stretch in front of Dunkin’ Donuts and Quick-Chek. Work will begin at 8 p.m. and continue until 5 a.m. each day.  

“We asked them [the water company] to switch over to night-time hours for this next part,” Pollock said.

The construction remains in the eastbound lane of traffic, as crews trench the roadway and lay new pipe. Eastbound (toward Rahway) traffic will have clear passage in the westbound lane of Westfield Avenue, Pollock said. Traffic travelling westbound, from Rahway, will be detoured to Broadway. The detour point has yet to be finalized, but may be at Liberty Street, Pollock said.

Earlier phases of construction along the roadway detoured eastbound traffic, so the traffic patterns in this phase have been changed.

“Officers will be in the roadway to direct traffic,” he said.
