SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Scotch Plains Police Department has been informed that the Department of Public Works (DPW) will be conducting a line striping operation on Park Ave starting today (Thurs, Oct.  2nd), through the morning of Friday, Oct. 3rd (before rush hour).

The operation is scheduled to start on Park Ave near Route 22 and continue south on Park Ave., ending at East 2nd St. Motorists should expect temporary closures, detours and/or lane shifts in the area and thus plan an alternate route or avoid the area altogether.

Parking along Park Ave will be restricted during the operation. Signs will be posted, and violators will be towed. 

The Scotch Plains police remind drivers to please drive carefully in the area tonight and watch for workers on the roadway.
