Shunpike Road Water Main Break

A water main break on Shunpike Road across from the main entrance to the Baltusrol Golf Club just before Baltusrol Way has disrupted the flow of traffic between Springfield and Summit.  Water began flowing out into the road in the morning.  New Jersey American Water was called to assess the problem and just after noon, it was determined to be a water main break.

Springfield Police shut down one lane, the northbound side, so the road could be opened up and crews could make repairs.  One lane, the southbound side, remained open for emergency vehicles to travel in both directions and for traffic to travel into Summit.  Vehicles coming from Summit, southbound in to Springfield, are being diverted left into Baltusrol Way.

New Jersey American Water expects the work to take several hours, possibly into the evening.
