Raritan Road is closed from Schuyler Drive to Featherbed Lane.
Clark Police have closed off Raritan Road from Schuyler Drive to Featherbed Lane due to downed live wires from this morning's high winds. The wires came down around 11:30 this morning.
According to Clark Police Chief Alan Scherb, three wires came down and were sparking. PSEG is on the scene repairing the wires.
Further down the road downed wires sparked a utility pole fire on Skyline and Acken Drives around 2 p.m. Scherb says a PSEG crew from the Raritan incident will now be working to repair those wires.
Fortunately, says Scherb, no other major incidents due to the wind have been reported.
