Please be advised that W.R. Tracy Drive from Glenside Ave Ave to the Loop in the Watchung Reservation will be closed to through traffic due to construction by the County of Union. The work being performed will consist of replacing the bridge that spans Lake Surprise. Due to the nature of the work involved, the amount of men and machinery required, full road closure 24/7 will be necessary in the area of work to optimize the safety of the work crews and motoring public alike.
A clearly marked detour route will be established and maintained by the contractor. Emergency vehicles and pedestrian traffic will not be allowed through the work zone and should plan accordingly. Access to parking spaces and trails in the vicinity of the work zone will be allowed as much as possible.
Per the County website, "the County recognizes the inconvenience that any road construction may cause and apologizes for any difficulties encountered. The County shall make every effort to have the work completed as soon as possible."
Regular updates for the various phases of construction and their impact on traffic will be posted if and when they become available. Check the official County of Union Road Construction Bureau of Traffic Safety and Maintenance for further details and updates.
