JACKSON TOWNSHIP, NJ – If you intend to drive down Route 571 in Jackson, the Jackson Police Department wants to make the community aware of a downed tree on the county road between Freehold Road and Leesville Road. Police reported a tree down across the roadway.
“Power outages are reported in the area as a result,” the department said. “Please follow the posted detours at Freehold and Leesville Roads as crews work to remove the tree and restore power to the area.
In addition, a tree just came down in the area of 256 Perrineville Road taking out primary power lines, so power restoration in the area may be delayed.”
The JPD urges motorists to use caution when driving through the area.
