According to Livingston junior water utility engineer Nathan Kiracofe, Public Service Electric & Gas (PSE&G) was running gas service for a new car wash at the circle. The underground work necessitated the closing of lanes on West Northfield Road, and the work took longer than initially expected, Kiracofe said, continuing on throughout the afternoon. Traffic back-ups were heavy by 3:30 p.m., when this photo was taken. The work was done by 5:30 p.m., Kiracofe said. JCC Photo

Van Breaks Bridge

Van Breaks Bridge

VAN BREAKS BRIDGE: At 12:27 p.m. on Monday, October 7, a contractor’s van loaded with bags of concrete mix was attempting to cross a bridge into a private driveway on East Northfield Road. The weight of the van caused one rear wheel to break through the wooden decking, causing the vehicle to become lodged in the bridge. A tow truck was able to extricate the van from the bridge before it fell into the water and damaged a gas line. Livingston Building Department officials inspected bridge and deemed it unsafe. The bridge was closed until repairs can be made. MI Photo
