New Jersey American Water is investing $1.1 million to advance service reliability and increase flows in Union.
The project will replace approximately 2,890 feet of aging 6-inch water main beginning on or about Dec. 4 with an expected completion date by the end of February, and final street restorations completed in the spring of 2020.
The project also includes Montana Construction Inc. replacing five fire hydrants and 61 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
The company will upgrade the aging water lines, with new, larger ductile iron main along the following streets:
- Halsey Avenue from Salem Road to the dead end on Dwight Terrace,
- Fairfield Way from Wayne Terrace to the dead end,
- Prescott Road from Colonial Avenue to Fairfield Way, and
- Princeton Road from Fairfield Way to Duquesne Terrace.
This improvement is part of New Jersey American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in more than 100 communities across the state.
