The township announced that on Monday, Oct. 22, the New Jersey Department of Transportation will begin construction that will force much of Wyckoff Avenue to close for the week.

Shannon added that he would send an email blast to residents if the utility company notifies the township that work would definitely continue beyond Wednesday. PSE&G crews have …
