Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Water announced that the contract to upgrade infrastructure water piping at 4 stream locations has been awarded to Fred Devens Construction. The project will be managed by Consulting Engineer, Mott MacDonald.
Construction activities will take place at Linwood Ave/Saddle River, North Irving St/HoHoKus Brook, East Ridgewood Ave/HoHokus Brook and Spring Ave/Hohokus Brook. Work is scheduled to commence in July with a contract duration of 180 days for completion.
The work will include replacing the existing water mains in the streams and tying back into the existing water mains in the streets. No interruption of service is expected for the residents during mainline construction. Brief interruptions of service may occur when transferring house services on an as needed basis.
