SOMERVILLE, NJ – No more ruts, no more steel plates, no more elevated manhole covers and no more dodging potholes on Bridge Street.

North and South Bridge Street, as well as several  less-traveled side streets throughout the borough, will be repaved beginning Sept. 11.

PSE&G began work in April breaking up the roadway surfaces to excavate and remove old cast iron pipes to be replaced with upgraded plastic and coated steel piping designed to be more durable and longer-lasting.

Once the replacement lines were installed and the excavations filled in, those portions of the roads dug up were paved over, leaving an uneven surface for vehicles to drive over.
