You are not supposed to make non-essential trips outside of your home due to COVID-19, which has infected over 100 people in Plainfield. But if you do have to get to the grocery store or the pharmacy – or to work if you are an essential employee – you can now use the Pemberton Avenue Bridge again. Road blocks were removed on Friday, April 3.
The bridge, in county-owned and operated Cedar Brook Park, was expected to be complete in March back when construction began around Halloween. The pandemic didn’t push it back much, only having missed that mark by a few of days.
