WOODLAND PARK, NJ - PSE&G has announced they will begin installing new gas mains the week of Nov. 18 on Weaseldrift Road.
Weaseldrift Road will be closed between Rifle Camp Road and Valley Road while this work is in progress. Motorists traveling North on Rifle Camp Road will be detoured north to New Street, proceeding right on Grand Street. To access Weaseldrift Road/Mountain Park Road motorists will travel south on Marshall Street to Valley Road.
Motorists traveling south on Rifle Camp Road will continue south to Great Notch Road exiting the roundabout at the third exit. The detour continues north on Valley Road in order to access Weaseldrift Road/Mountain Park Road. Motorists traveling south on Valley Road will utilize the same route south to Great Notch Road and then north on Rifle Camp Road exiting the roundabout at the first exit.
Motorists traveling North on Valley Road will proceed on Valley Road turning left on Marshall Street and then left on Grand Street. Motorists can make a left on New Street and will make a left on Squirrelwood Road in order to access Rifle Camp Road and the end of the detour at Weaseldrift Road.
PSE&G will have smaller work zones in various locations to finish connecting the newly installed main into the distribution system. These locations usually occur at intersections and all work zones will be coordinated with police and traffic control.
This work is part of the utility’s town-wide project to make gas delivery to local homes and businesses safer, cleaner, and more efficient. While residents may experience temporary road closures, local police officers will be on site to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic during this time.
In addition to gas main replacements, PSE&G crews are also continuing service upgrade work, a process that, because of its proximity to homeowner’s property lines, requires less digging.
