Water Main Replacement: Parsonage Hill Road (Update 3/5)

Update: 3/5

Vollers will be preparing an excavation for the interconnect between the 24’ & 30” water mains on Parsonage Hill Road, just east of Chapel Hill Road.


Vollers will be working between Chapel Hill Road and Denman Court on Parsonage Hill Road installing water services. All roadway excavations will be backfilled and paved prior to leaving the site.

Update: 1/30

Vollers, the contractor for the water main replacement project, will continue installing the 8" water main and sawcutting the pavement along Parsonage Hill Road (weather permitting). The work will be located between Denman Court and Hartshorn Drive. All excavations will be backfilled and paved prior to leaving the site. Any excavations that remain open will be plated.

Project Description

New Jersey American Water is conducting a water main replacement on Parsonage Hill Road, replacing a 24 inch main with a 32 inch upgrade. This project will include new connections to each house, and existing lines will have to be reconnected.

Work will continue into the spring and will be conducted in small sections to minimize the roadway impact. Parsonage Hill Road will be cut and patched each day; use caution when driving as there will be loose gravel and roadway patches.

Current Road Closures

Parsonage Hill Road will be closed between White Oak Ridge Road and Long Hill Drive. Emergency vehicles cannot pass during working hours. There will be a soft road closure at Parsonage Hill Road and Hartshorn Drive and another soft road closure at Parsonage Hill Road and Old Short Hills Road.

Vehicles attempting to travel south on Parsonage Hill Road at White Oak Ridge Road will be detoured onto White Oak Ridge Road eastbound where they will turn right onto Great Hills Road and up to Old Short Hills Road. Detoured vehicles will turn right onto Old Short Hills Road, which will bring them down to the Old Short Hills Road and Parsonage Hill Road Closure.

The detour for Old Short Hills Road and Parsonage Hill Road is the same as the above from the opposite direction.

Hours of work: 9:00am to 3:00pm. All work is weather dependent.
