SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Scotch Plains and Fanwood residents should be advised that Park Ave. from Route 22 to Portland Ave. in Scotch Plains will be under construction on or about Friday, August 2, 2019. The road will be closed overnight from approximately 7:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. on Saturday. The work is estimated to take approximately four (4) nights to complete, weather permitting.

There may be mobilization and prep work on the part of the contractor in advance of the actual start day. However, this activity should have little or no impact on local traffic.

The work will consist of milling, paving, and striping of the road. Due to the nature of the work involved, the amount of men and machinery required, full road closure will be necessary in the area of work to optimize the safety of the work crews and motoring public alike.
