SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – The intersection of Raritan and Rahway roads will be closed throughout the day on Thursday for emergency repaving, as New Jersey American Water is experiencing a problem following some major work recently completed.
“Through traffic and access to Edison from Scotch Plains, on either road may not be possible at times. There are no short or easy detours around this intersection,” said Sgt. Hernandez in a written statement from the Scotch Plains Police Department.
“Please plan an alternate route and avoid the area. Residents may experience some difficulty going to or leaving their houses throughout the day,” said Hernandez. “Officers from the Scotch Plains Police Dept will be on site to enforce the closure and assist local residents.”
