Better water drainage in the Harry’s Brook neighborhood should result from the installation last week of six sections of concrete, with a single large opening, on Braeburn Drive. The new construction replaces the 50-year old corrugated culvert with two small openings that failed to contain floodwaters last summer. Construction Administrator Bob Killian reported that Braeburn Drive, which has been closed since August, will temporarily reopen “in three or four weeks.” Since cold weather precludes paving at this time, sidewalks and curbing will be installed in early spring.

The H1N1 vaccine is now widely available for Mercer County residents, according to the County Health Department and its partner, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton.

Segments of the population who are more susceptible to contracting the H1N1 virus than others include pregnant women or women who may become pregnant; household contacts and caregivers for children younger than six months of age; healthcare and emergency medical services personnel; all people from six months through 24 years of age; and persons aged 25 through 64 years who have health conditions associated with higher risk of medical complications from influenza. Those seeking flu shots should check the Department of Health and Senior Services website at; contact their physician, community health center, local pharmacy, local or county health department, hospital or school; or call New Jersey’s H1N1 Information Hotline at (866)-321-9571
