SADDLE BROOK, N.J. — Utility work will close part of Saddle River Road in Saddle Brook starting Monday, Jan. 4.
The street will be closed from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday starting Jan. 4. The construction will affect Saddle River Road from Railroad Avenue to Market Street.
The work is tentatively scheduled to finish Jan. 14.
Mayor Bob White said the construction is part of PSE&G's Energy Strong program.
Energy Strong consists of replacing 250 old gas lines, including three miles in Saddle Brook.
""These new pipes will prevent water from entering the mains, increasing the reliability of gas service in locations that sustained water damage during Hurricane Irene or Superstorm Sandy," PSE&G spokeswoman Lindsey Puliti told Daily Voice.
Two detours will be set up for Saddle River Road.
All east and westbound traffic on Market and Essex streets will be detoured to Rochelle Avenue, then Railroad Avenue to go north on Saddle River Road.
All southbound traffic on Saddle River Road will be rerouted to Railroad Avenue then Rochelle Avenue.
The Energy Strong work in Saddle Brook started in October.
