New Jersey American Water will replace approximately 1,760 feet of aging water main in Roselle Park beginning the week of April 6.
The company plans to invest $701,000 to upgrade aging 6-inch water lines with 12-inch ductile iron main along West Webster Avenue from Laurel Avenue to Locust Street. The project also includes replacing four fire hydrants and 16 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route.
In February NJAW said it was investing $589,000 to replace about 1,320 feet of aging water main in Roselle Park.
Montana Construction Inc. expects to finish in approximately four weeks, weather permitting. Final street restorations will be completed in the summer of 2020.
NJAW also said Monday it will spend $2.1 million to replace approximately 5,100 feet of aging water main in Bernardsville beginning this week.
The project also includes replacing four fire hydrants and 51 utility-owned service lines along the pipeline route. The company will upgrade the aging 6-inch and 8-inch water lines with new, 16-inch ductile iron main along the following streets:
- Childs Road from Morristown Road to Mullens Lane

CRJ Contracting Inc. will begin work on or about April 8 and expects to finish within approximately three months, weather permitting.
The Camden-based company said this investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community. 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.
