South Avenue businesses will be open throughout the road
reconstruction project and need your patronage!
The much anticipated South Ave road construction began today. The crews will start on the section between Terrill Road and Leland Ave. After that section is completed in about 3-4 weeks the construction will move to the section between Woodland Ave and Leland Ave. This will take another 3-4 weeks to complete.
LANE CLOSURES: at times during the day lane closures will occur, when this happens traffic will be in one direction - west to east (towards Fanwood). It is anticipated that two way traffic will resume during nights and weekends.
DRIVE SAFELY: though signage will divert traffic to North Ave, we anticipate that most motorists will choose East 7th Avenue. It is crucial that caution is used at the busy pedestrian cross-walks on East 7th at Woodland, Belvidere and Leland Avenues.
SUPPORT THE MERCHANTS: your local merchants will need your support during these two months of road repair. I cannot express enough how important it is to shop and dine during this period. Two months loss revenue can bedevastating for a small business or a restaurant.
CONTACT INFO: Plainfield Police will be stationed at both ends of the roadway if you need assistance. You may also contact the engineer, Jackie Foushee at 201-624-2127 ext 1805, or the paving construction foreman John Constantine on his cell at 609-561-4161.
