Roadway Closures on Eastbound Side of South Orange Avenue from Nov. 16 to Nov. 20

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - The eastbound side of South Orange Avenue between Cherry Lane/Brookside Drive and Wyoming Avenue will be closed from Monday, November 16 to Friday, November 20 from approximately 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to a press release from the Essex County Executive's office.
There is a detour planned along Cherry Lane, Northfield Avenue and Wyoming Avenue, and motorists should expect delays. Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr., Essex County Executive, stated "closing South Orange Avenue will be an inconvenience for motorists traveling to work or school or going about their daily business. However, it must be done to maximize safety for drivers, pedestrians and construction crews,” DiVincenzo continued, “ee ask motorists to follow our detour, plan alternate routes and give themselves additional time to travel. We appreciate the public’s cooperation and look forward to a new and improved South Orange Avenue."
During the November 16 to November 20 road closure, motor vehicles traveling eastbound on South Orange Avenue will be detoured north on Cherry Lane to east on Northfield Avenue to south on Wyoming Avenue before returning to South Orange Avenue. The westbound lanes of South Orange Avenue will remain open as usual and will not be affected by the eastbound closure or detour. 

According to the press release, the "eastbound lane closures will enable the contractor to safely move equipment. The westbound lanes will remain open. This is part of the ongoing $30 million federally-funded project to flatten the curves in the road, enhance motor vehicle safety and improve storm drainage."

The roadwork being completed is part of a larger project to modernize the 1.6-mile stretch of South Orange Avenue, which started in April 2014 and is expected to be completed by spring, 2016. The roadwork project when it is finished will include many improvements, including lessening the severity of the curves in the road, creating a shoulder on the eastbound lanes, and adding 3,600 new trees. Three bridges will be erected over the roadway as well.

Funding for the project is being provided by a federal transportation grant.
