SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The Clinton Avenue Extension will be closed beginning Monday August 6th for rail crossing repairs. A Nixle Alert sent out by the Borough indicated the rail work would last all week long. Variable message board signs announcing the railroad closing have popped up in a number of locations throughout town.

Last year Councilman Bengivenga met with Conrail officials to discuss the condition of the three major railroad crossings in the Borough as well as a number of railroad issues.

The New Brunswick railroad crossing which had fallen in disrepair was fixed last October.
