Current Status/Progress Report
Kamminga & Roodvoets (K&R) intends to start construction of this project in the middle of May 2022. A tentative project timeline is shown below for reference. Construction will generally progress from southwest (Lakehurst) to northeast (5 Mile Rd).
Once work begins, work will generally be conducted between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday, with possible work on Saturdays.
For the safety of all residents and construction crews, we ask that residents stay out of the construction area at all times and be aware of construction equipment moving throughout the project area.
K&R will always maintain access for local traffic and emergency vehicles. There will be short periods of time when utilities are being installed in front of your houses and your driveway will be inaccessible. K&R will work to restore driveways as soon as possible during the day and will ensure that all driveways are accessible by the end of the workday. Generally, the immediate work area will be impassible during work hours. See photo below for what a typical sanitary sewer construction work area looks like. Caution is advised while driving through the project area.
Sewer and water service will be maintained throughout construction. However, temporary water shutdowns will be required to connect new water main to existing water mains and to connect new water services to each home. Plainfield’s Water Department will provide advance notice prior to water main shutdowns. K&R will coordinate with individual homeowners when water services are temporarily disconnected and reconnected to the new service.
Please contact any project representative if you have questions or concerns.
