SUMMIT, NJ - A significant section of Passaic Avenue, from River Road to Constantine Place, will be under construction -- and closed completely at night for an estimated nine nights -- beginning August 29. The thoroughfare will be the site of various road improvements, such as milling, paving, and striping of the road.

According to Union County, "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. To minimize impact on local traffic, the work will be performed overnight. The road will be closed from approximately 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. the following morning, weather permitting."

Signage placed on Passaic Avenue indicates the closure will be for six nights, however the latest information released by Union County indicates the road will be shuttered for nine nights.

A clearly marked detour route will be established and maintained by County forces. Emergency vehicles will be allowed through at all times. Access to residences, including deliveries and other services, in the work zone will be allowed as much as possible.

Those with questions are instructed to call the Union County Traffic Bureau at 908-789-6011 during normal business hours. If any emergencies should arise, the public is advised to contact the Summit Police Department at 908-273-0051.

Regular updates for the various phases of construction and their impact on traffic will be posted, if and when they become available, at ucnj.org.
