The Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission (PVSC) is beginning the process of rehabilitating the Kearny-Harrison-Newark (KHN) Branch Interceptor Sewer on Schuyler Avenue between Tappan Street and King Street within the Town of Kearny.
PVSC, its General Contractor (Montana Construction Corp, Inc.) and Subcontractor (Spiniello Companies) anticipate that the rehabilitation preparation work in Kearny will commence in late March 2017 and, weather-permitting, that the work will conclude by early May 2017. The first phase of the work (estimated through mid-April) will be generally north of Bergen Avenue, and the second phase of the work (mid-April through early May) will be generally south of Bergen Avenue.
Most of the duration of this work will have minimal traffic impacts, but there will be intermittent parking and traffic disruptions on Schuyler Avenue, including periods of lane closures and detours.
The Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission recognizes that the nature and duration of this project will have an impact on the local community. However, the infrastructure work, which is being performed on an emergency basis due to the failed condition of the interceptor, is critical to ensuring the health and safety of area residents and businesses.
Schedule updates will be posted on this site as they are available.
