AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR METUCHEN RESIDENTS
As Middlesex Water Company continues with the installation of its large diameter 4.5 mile-long supplementary water transmission main, approximately 240 feet of new main will be installed in Metuchen requiring road closures and traffic detours on Durham Avenue for approximately 6 weeks, beginning August 19, 2019.

For week of August 12, 2019, the work activities for the Middlesex Water Company Western Transmission Main project are anticipated to be as follows:
North of Route 287 - Borough of Metuchen
J. Fletcher Creamer & Son, Inc. (JFC) will resume installation of the 42-inch DIP along Durham Avenue in the area of Hampton Street to Jersey Avenue.
Please CLICK HERE for a map that shows the approximate location of both contractors along the alignment.
Water main installation work along Durham Avenue in the area of Hampton Street to Jersey Avenue has started. Portions of the work between the Metuchen Sportsplex and the intersection of Durham and Jersey Avenue will be installed by trenchless methods. Trenchless technology installs underground infrastructure without disturbing the ground above along the route. However it requires an excavation to remain open for the duration of the installation. It will require a single lane closure on Durham Avenue 24 hours per day while the work is taking place. Durham Avenue from John Street to Central Avenue will be closed to eastbound traffic starting from August 12, 2019 to accommodate the installation of this section of 42-inch water main. The work will run approximately 5 weeks depending on weather and production. Signage has been erected advising motorists of detours.
