The Scotch Plains Municipal Building will be open 24 hours a day and the Scotch Plains Library will be open normal business hours throughout the week if you need to seek relief from the heat. The Chelsea (295 South Avenue) in Fanwood has also been designated as a cooling station.

The Township Department of Public Works will be milling and paving Aberdeen Rd. and Leland Ave. (between Aberdeen Rd. and Cushing Rd.) starting on or about Monday, July 27 (weather permitting). We anticipate that this project will take four days to complete. While the project is underway, the road will closed from 7:30 a.m. to approximately 4:30 p.m. each day. No cars will be allowed to drive on Aberdeen Rd. or the section of Leland Ave. during the day and police will be on site to enforce this provision. The road will be re-opened each evening. Your car will be allowed back in after the work for each day is completed.
All Summer Concerts begin at 7:30 PM at Augustine Park, 430 Park Avenue, adjacent to Municipal Hall. Here is the remaining summer concert schedule:
