TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Due to the final phase of the water main construction project on Ridgedale Avenue, and a required connection on Park Avenue, two nights are required for construction at the Park/Ridgedale intersection to alleviate traffic concerns on Park Ave. Ridgedale Avenue between Walnut Street and Park Avenue will be closed and only accessible to local traffic. Park Ave traffic will be maintained where possible.
TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Due to a water main construction project on Ridgedale Avenue running behind schedule, a regional detour plan has been designed for the month of September which will affect those traveling to the High School and the Central Avenue School. Ridgedale Avenue between Burnet Road and Park Avenue will be closed and only accessible to local traffic. High School Parents/Students: Expect detours in the area. Travel to the High School by using Central Avenue or Burnet Road. The area of the High School will not be occupied by the water main contractor after the opening of school, however the County of Morris may perform a two day paving project on Ridgedale Avenue (north of Central Avenue) within the next 60 days (exact date unknown). Central Avenue School Parents: Expect detours in the area. Access to Walnut Street will be severely limited. Greenwood Avenue or Brittin Street are the preferred drop-off and pickup locations for the duration of the Ridgedale Avenue Water Main project. It is encouraged that students walk or ride a bicycle to school where possible. A police officer will be on-site during morning receiving hours and afternoon discharge hours at those preferred locations to assist crossing guards with any traffic issues. The water main construction contractor anticipates completion by the end of September. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION. THE BOROUGH OF MADISON
This year’s Water Main Replacement Program by the Borough of Madison (Water Department) includes construction work in Ridgedale Avenue in July and August.

You may expect separate contacts from the Utility General Contractor during the course of the project and they will coordinate with residents in the immediate vicinity of work to minimize inconvenience.

Top Line Construction, the General Contractor retained by the Borough of Madison to complete the resurfacing of Rosedale Avenue, intends to begin milling operations on Thursday May 16, 2013 and paving operations the following Tuesday, May 21, weather conditions permitting. Due to the size of the project, several days will be required for each task, but work will be phased to minimize access limitations for Madison public. Property access along Rosedale Ave during milling will not be compromised for more than one hour at individual properties. Generally access during final paving operations is restricted for half a day in the direct vicinity of work. Your cooperation is requested during the time of construction to remove/relocate the automobiles you intend to use by approximately 7:30 a.m. on final paving days when the contractor is active in your vicinity. This will minimize interruption of construction work and allow the contractor to finish as soon as possible. Temporary Parking on a minor local street within 1000 feet of your home/business may be anticipated with the cooperation of the Police Department. Emergency “NO PARKING” will be enforced by the Police Department during construction if vehicles impede progress. Specific scheduling problems may be directed to the office of the Borough Engineer. The Police Department can be contacted for traffic information and assistance. The inconvenience is temporary but the improvements will last many years. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION !
