SUMMIT, NJ - The City of Summit, which last night announced that Springfield Avenue -- between Summit Avenue and Broad Street -- would be closed during the daytime through the end of the week, has now detailed that Springfield Avenue -- between Argyle Court and Park Avenue -- will be completely shuttered beginning August 14 through August 31.
The current full road closure, effective through August 11, is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and has been implemented to alleviate vehicular traffic congestion in residential streets adjacent to the Springfield Avenue construction work.
When the 24/7 partial road closure commences August 14, residents will have access to driveways at all times, and pathways for pedestrians along with access for emergency vehicles will be established. Delays are expected, with motorists and pedestrians asked to avoid the area, if at all possible. Summit Police officers will be onsite to help direct local traffic.
The City also has amended the recently-announced micro-paving project schedule:
Thursday, August 10: Chapel Street, Yale Street, and Princeton Street
Friday, August 11: Shunpike Road, Silver Lake Drive, Windsor Road, Cleveland Road, and Linden Place
Monday, August 14: Woodland Avenue (Deforest Avenue to Hartley Road), and Oak Forest Lane
Tuesday, August 15: Harvey Court, Harvey Drive, and Woodland Avenue (Hartley Road to River Road)
