SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Middlesex Water Company’s $10.0 million infrastructure upgrades to South Plainfield’s water mains and supply lines moves over to the Sampton Avenue section of South Plainfield beginning tomorrow. According to a release by both Middlesex Water Company and South Plainfield Mayor Matthew P. Anesh, the utility upgrades in the Sampton Avenue area are expected to last close to a month.
“Beginning 8:00am Monday July 10th, Sampton Avenue will be a one-way roadway heading Eastbound from 8:00am – 4:00pm each day,” said Anesh. “The one-way detour will be in place only during the day, and the roadway will be open to two lane traffic at night.”
Dead-end roadways such as Norway Lane, Borman Road and Martin Drive will all be open, but only assessable by driving eastbound on Sampton Avenue. According to Middlesex Water Company, there will only be service disruptions at the time of conversion from the old water lines to the newly installed lines. This service disruption is estimated to last at most a few hours.
Middlesex Water Company’s $10.0 million Renew Infrastructure upgrade program began on Lane Avenue and the adjacent roadways in late June. The water company is also doing water line upgrades in the Madison, North Madison and South Madison sections of the Borough. In total, Middlesex Water Company estimates over six miles of water line and service upgrades in South Plainfield.
