If you’re planning on crossing the West Front Street Bridge anytime soon, plan an alternate route.
Utility relocation work and intersection reconstruction on both sides of the West Front Street Bridge (otherwise known as Hubbard’s Bridge) will begin at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12.
To facilitate the utility work and additional intersection reconstruction, the bridge will be closed to all motor vehicle traffic for two weeks. Weather permitting, the work should be completed by Aug. 26, allowing for the reopening of the bridge in advance of Labor Day weekend.
“We met the primary goal of having the new bridge and open in time for the Memorial Day weekend,” Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone said in a press release. “The utility companies must now relocate their lines and equipment before the bridge contractor can work and complete the remaining work for the project.
