MOUNT OLIVE, NJ - A heads-up to Roxbury motorists who usually take South Hillside Avenue en route to Flanders: Road closures in that area are expected from next week through the end of July.

That's how long it is expected to take NJ Natural Gas to install new gas lines in the Flanders section of Mount Olive, said police. They said the project will require 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekday closures of North Road (which becomes South Hillside Avenue in Roxbury), Main Street and Park Place. 

Police stressed the12-week-long duration of the work is an approximation.
