On Monday, March 3, 2014, PSE&G will begin a road project in the area of S. Washington Ave and New Bridge Rd. The project is anticipated to last for several weeks, there will be two teams working simultaneously in the area. Each day the work will begin at approximately 8:30 am and end at approximately 5:00 pm.
On S. Washington Ave, trenches will be dug on the east side of the roadway between Liberty Rd and New Bridge Rd. On New Bridge Rd, trenches will be dug on the south side of the roadway between S. Washington Ave and the railroad tracks.
Due to the construction, lane changes and turn restrictions will take place for the duration of the project. Both roadways will experience prolonged partial lane closures resulting in a delay in traffic flow.
At this time, traffic on S. Washington Ave is anticipated to continue to flow in both north and south directions however, the work will dictate the need for additional changes with the flow of traffic and lane closures.
Officers will be on site daily to ensure that traffic flows as smooth as possible, as well as maintaining a safe work environment for the PSE&G workers.
Motorists are encouraged to find alternate travel routes during the construction project to avoid delays.
Any questions please contact Lt. Stapleton of the Bergenfield Traffic Bureau at 201-387-4000 x 4008.
