Clean up: Company announces plan to revitalize area in Woodbridge

    A project to clean up the area along Raritan River in Woodbridge, New Jersey could end up providing business opportunities and a path to the state’s largest river.

    In a story from the Star-Ledger, plans to revitalize the land along the Raritan River were detailed last week.  The fenced off 186-acre area has sat vacant since the 1980’s.

    According to the Star-Ledger, EPEC Polymers, a company affiliated with the current landowners, will work to restore 100 acres of wetlands along the river and clean up 50 acres for business development.

    EPEC is also expected to build a pedestrian walk and other amenities as part of the project, which is expected to cost between $35 million to $40 million.

    The project is expected to take four years to complete.
