ROSELLE PARK, NJ - New Jersey American Water (NJAW), has begun to replace approximately 1,320 feet of aging water main in Roselle Park. The company will upgrade the aging 6-inch water lines with new, 12-inch ductile iron main along Seaton Avenue from Faitoute Avenue to Laurel Avenue. The project also includes replacing three fire hydrants and 44 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
According to NJAW representatives, the $589,000 investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community. This improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state.
New Jersey American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Montana Construction Inc., will begin work this week and expects to finish by the end of March, weather permitting. Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work outside of these hours is not expected unless required to maintain the project schedule. Final street restorations will be completed in the summer of 2020.
For the public’s and workers’ safety, traffic restrictions and/or alternating traffic patterns are likely to occur during work hours. All emergency vehicles and local traffic will be allowed access during construction. New Jersey American Water values the safety of its workers and advises drivers and pedestrians to take caution in the vicinity of work sites.
