Starting today, March 22, Central Avenue between Hoboken Avenue and Newark Avenue will be temporarily closed to traffic for utility work.
The closure is due to the installation of a gas line and a fiber optic conduit under Central Avenue.
The construction is expected to last approximately six weeks.
During construction, southbound traffic from Rt. 139 along Central Avenue will be detoured via Hoboken Avenue and Newark Avenue.
Central Avenue will be reopened to traffic when the utility work is completed.
When construction on the courthouse is complete, PSE&G will be installing street lighting along Central Avenue.
In the interim HCIA will install temporary lighting along the street.
