Five Things You Need to Know for Friday
Progress made on Mt. Bethel Road, and don't forget about the warming centers.
As Warren residents continue to work around the ongoing power outage and roadway chalenges caused by Hurricane Sandy, here are a few things to know today:
1. Mt. Bethel Road is now open to King George Road.
The road had been blocked but is now open, and electric power has been restored to some of the upper area of Mt. Bethel Road.
2. Exxon stations on Liberty Corner Road and Mt. Bethel Road are open.
Both had been without power but now have service.
3. JCP&L is reporting service restored to about 2,000 customers in Warren.
The company initially had more than 5,200 without power, but as of 7 a.m. Friday, that number is down to 3,285. PSE&G is still reporting between 501 and 2,000 customers without power.
4. Warming and charging centers are open
The municipal courtroom and Stonecrest Community Church are open for charging electronic devices, as well as just warming up and relaxing. The courtroom will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., while Stonecrest is also hosting a Red Cross shelter which is oopen all night.
Also, don't forget that water is available at the snack shack at the municipal baseball fields behind the municipal complex on Bardy Road.
5. Some roads remain closed.
Avoid King George Road, Round Top Road and Morning Glory Road. You can get all the way to Mt. Bethel Road on Mt. Horeb Road, but it is detoured through the Central School parking lot. Old Stirling Road and Dock Watch Hollow Road are open the full length, and Liberty Corner Road is open from Mt. Horeb Road to Route 78.
