The demolition of the former Maplewood Village post office site that was to have begun on Tuesday has been delayed until today.

See the announcement from the Township, which indicates it will cause parking and other disruptions for about three weeks, below:

Construction Update at 160 Maplewood Avenue

On Wednesday, May 18th, demolition will begin at 160 Maplewood Avenue.  The demolition phase will take about three weeks.

Pedestrian Access
A covered pedestrian path is open along the side of the building in the Village Coffee lot. The path runs between the NJT pedestrian tunnel and the crosswalk at Inwood Place. The crosswalk at the south end of Ricalton Square is also open and accessible. Please do not walk along the construction fence on Maplewood Avenue between Inwood Place and Ricalton Square or in the street. Take the extra 30 seconds and cross the street to the other side;  it will be much safer, and you’ll have a better view!

Vehicular Circulation
A circulation lane will remain open through the entrance of the Ricalton Square lot. Access in and out of the Village Coffee lot will remain the same.

Parking in Ricalton Square
Parking will be available along the train tracks, on the park side of Ricalton Square, and on the north end adjacent to Valley National Bank. Parking on both sides of the entrance to Ricalton Square will unavailable until further notice.

Parking in the Village Coffee lot
Parking spots on the north side of the lot, where the temporary pedestrian walkway is installed, is closed. All other parking in the Village Coffee lot will remain available.  
Please use caution near the construction site. There will be a lot of activity in a small area for the next several months. Let’s all be safe.
