(Colonial Avenue) – Beginning Monday, April 1, a contractor will have Colonial Avenue closed between Northbrook Avenue and Grove Avenue for road repairs. This work is expected to last for approximately 150 days.

(Route 460/Pruden Boulevard) -- At the request of the contractor, the original road closure date for the Route 460/Pruden Boulevard construction project (2500 block of Pruden Boulevard/Route 460 extending between Lake Meade and Sadler Pond) has been modified to add up to an additional twenty (20) days of full closure to the schedule so that the project is guaranteed to be completed and the affected roadway entirely reopened by May 31, 2019. This extension is required due to unforeseen utility issues that have arisen as well as the extremely wet weather we’ve experienced and to allow a safer operating environment for contractors working on the roadway.  This extension will also eliminate the need of the earlier referenced use of one lane in each direction for an additional period of 6 weeks following the previously announced partial reopening to have taken place on or near May 11, 2019. Current traffic patterns will remain in effect until the project completion date on or before May 31, 2019. Variable message boards have been placed along the route to alert the motoring public of the roadwork.
