MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The walls along the east branch of the Rahway River in Memorial Park are scheduled to be repaired. The township worked with FEMA to obtain funding to repair the walls, which were damaged during the flooding from Hurricane Irene in 2011.
The walls will be reconstructed in the original locations using the same materials as the original walls. The foundations will also be redone to support the walls. The footprint of the walls, the hydraulics of the stream and the aesthetics of the area will all remain unchanged, according to the township.
There is no word yet on when the project will begin.
