The historic arched bridge U-18 located on Race Street over the Grandin Stream is closing for reconstruction on or about June 17, 2013. This bridge is 2/10 of a mile from CR 513 and 6/10 of a mile from Perryville Road. The bridge will be completely replaced and the road will be closed from approximately three months. The new bridge will replicate the old one, but will be wider and will be stone faced on both sides. Plan to use Cook Cross Road as a detour. Thank you to the Union Township Historic Society for their help with this project.
Starting this Saturday May 4, the mini dump has been moved to the
rear of the municipal building to improve efficiencies. Recycling will remain at the rear of the municipal building, but in a new location. Please follow the directions of the recycling attendants and drive with caution as we work through the logistics of the new arrangement. The mini dump schedule will not change; it will be open the first and third Saturdays of each month from 8am-12pm; recycling will remain open every Saturday from 8am-12pm.

Would you like to be better informed in case of a County-wide emergency? Register for alerts from the County Communications Center at http://co.hunterdon.nj.us/rapidnotify.htm. In addition to weather alerts, the County may send out additional alerts where public health or safety may be endangered: for example, large fires, chemical spills, public water contamination, or certain police activity. Those who register can receive alerts on cell phones, home phones, or via email. The registration process is simple and can be completed from home, work or a computer in a public place such as a library. Residents who are unfamiliar, or uncomfortable, with computers should ask a family member to sign them up for phone notifications.
