What was happening on Springfield Ave by the Home Depot on Thursday?

On Thursday I was trying to get to Maplewood from New Providence around 1pm.

First I had to get off 78 east one exit early because they close the off-ramp to Maplewood.

Then traffic was backed up for at least half a mile before the light at Manny's because Springfield Ave was closed off and everyone had to go though the jug-handle. As you all know, that light is really short, but instead of directing traffic the Union Twp cops were just sitting in their cars.

Any idea why they closed off the road?  There were lots of traffic cones but nothing else was happening.

Looked like some kind of road repair. There was a public works truck there.
