MADISON, NJ — Power has been restored to half of Maple Avenue, announced borough officials. Madison Electric has confirmed that the remaining power restoration will be completed today.
Which is good news considering that nearby Madison, Florham Park and Morris Township residents will remain without electricity through August 11 at 11pm, the company confirmed.
On its Facebook page in a post made at about 6:30 p.m. yesterday, August 5, JCP&L said an additional 1,300 workers will be arriving today from out of state, joining nearly 4,000 workers already engaged in the restoration effort. These workers will be based out of one of five staging sites located near the hardest hit areas, it continued, although those locations were not identified.
“When line crews are assigned each outage order, the restoration time will be updated to reflect when repairs at that location will be completed,” the post continued. “We understand this is an incredibly difficult time. Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding and support for our crews.”
Mayor Conley in a Facebook update thanked the Madison Borough employees for getting the town and its residents through another storm.
"I want to thank our great Madison borough employees for getting us through yet another major storm; our electric department, public works, police and fire", he said. "Your work and dedication makes Madison not only the best place to live on sunny days, but also when the dark clouds roll in."
