CLARK, NJ – Motorists who typically travel on Oak Ridge Road between Lake Avenue and Raritan Road should plan to find an alternate route through Nov. 15, as New Jersey American Water Company replaces a 12” underground valve.

“The project represents a critical investment for the company in support of our commitment to provide customers with high-quality, reliable water service,” the company said in a statement.

Road work began on Nov. 2, with motorists reporting narrowed lanes and coned-off areas. The Clark Police Department is coordinating road closures and detours throughout the project.  Single lane and complete closures are anticipated at points.   

While work will generally happen from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., the water company indicated there will be four days of round-the-clock work.  They also noted that no work will be done and the road will remain open on Election Day (Tuesday, Nov. 8).
