MAPLEWOOD, NJ - Construction continues at the new Clarus building at 160 Maplewood Ave., and an update to the Maplewood Township website states that access to the north end of the Village Coffee parking lot off of Maplewood Avenue, as well as the parking spots in that portion of the lot, will be unavailable through next Friday, May 5. 

This closure is so that the sanitary sewer line can be completed, and for curbing on the south side of the Clarus building to be installed, stated the website update. In addition, the north end of the Village Coffee lot from Maplewood Avenue to the railroad tracks will be re-graded, milled, and paved, and the parking spots will be striped.  

All parking spots are scheduled to be restored in the north end of the Village Coffee parking lot by late afternoon on Friday, May 5, and pedestrian access to the NJ Transit tunnel will remain open during this time, according to the update on the Maplewood website.
