Just like clockwork, NJT has closed Central Avenue (two-way traffic) and New Street (southbound only) to vehicular traffic as part of its ongoing program of Plainfield bridge renovations.
The barricades went up on Saturday and are expected to remain in place until next Spring.
Readers who use Central Avenue as a quick and easy route to and from Route 22 and other points should make alternate plans.
Meanwhile, Liberty Street (northbound) and Madison Avenue (southbound) are once again open to vehicular traffic.
With the recent completion of the Duer Street bridge work over the Green Brook, the Duer Street/Madison Avenue route will help those who want to avoid the Central Avenue headache, but only on the SOUTHBOUND trip.
As Roy Rogers and Dale Evans used to sing, "Happy Trails To You".
