FLushing of Water Pipelines in Northfield
Beginning the week of April 8, New Jersey American Water Company is scheduled to begin flushing pipelines throughout the City of Northfield. This process will involve systematically opening fire hydrants over a six-week period during the overnight hours, 12 midnight – 5:30 AM, Monday – Friday.
Some of these hydrants are located on county roadways and may temporarily impact traffic flow.
Questions about the flushing process should be directed to New Jersey American Water customer service, 1-800-272-1325, Monday-Friday, 7 AM – 7 PM.
Emergency Closing - Nacote Creek Bridge, Port Republic
Effective as of 2 PM on Wednesday, March 20, the Nacote Creek Bridge (PR-7), Old New York Road (CR610) over Nacote Creek in Port Republic is closed to all traffic following an interim state inspection that found additional deterioration of the bridge that is scheduled for full replacement by the county beginning later this year.
The state has been inspecting the bridge every three months to ensure its safety. Prior to today’s inspection the bridge had last been inspected before the beginning of this year and was not found to be unsafe for travel at that time.
Atlantic County has been working with the state Department of Environmental Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers for permitting approvals. Construction was originally scheduled to begin as early as July but will now be delayed for a few months due to the rigors of bridge permitting.
A detour will be posted and motorists are advised to plan travel time accordingly.

Motorists may turn east on Old Turnpike from Main Street and proceed past the detour sign at Madison Avenue. Then continue on Old Turnpike across Franklin Boulevard to the shelter.
The current detour is expected to remain in place for the next several months. Signs have been posted to direct motorists to the Animal Shelter.
