Northbound traffic on Davis Ave. in Harrison has been detoured around West Hudson Park for several months pending completion of work being done in the county park.
Hudson County spokesman Jim Kennelly said the re-routing of traffic is related to a $1,657,395 bridge project in the park which began on May 15.
“The project ran into a problem with a 16-inch gas main on Davis Ave. that needs to be relocated,” Kennelly said.
He said that PSE&G’s contractor Fletcher Creamer is expected to start excavation shortly to install a new pipe.
The county anticipates that the contractor will complete the relocation of the gas main by mid-November, Kennelly said.
Other work remaining to be done as part of the county bridge project includes new curbing, curb wall, sidewalks, pavement and ornamental fencing, he said.
All of that work should be finished before Christmas, Kennelly said.
