Main Line Repairs to Cause Traffic Delays in Glen Rock

Work begins Friday, Aug. 10 and will last about two weeks.

NJ Transit will be making starting on Friday, Aug. 10, and the work will slow up commuters for the next two weeks.

Businesses will still be open as will the (though parking will be restricted to one side of Doremus). Work will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mon-Fri; and 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.

The detours are sure to be a headache for drivers. Here are the detour routes, according to the borough:

  • Rock Road & Maple Avenue: North on Maple Avenue to Ackerman Avenue, left on Ackerman Avenue, left on Doremus Avenue AND Maple Avenue south to Elm Street, right on Elm Street, left on Harristown Road, right on Lincoln Avenue, then right on Rock Road.
  • Rock Road & Harding Avenue: Right on Harding Avenue, left on Broad Street, then left on Ackerman Avenue.
  • Rock Road & Glen Avenue: Left on Glen Avenue, right on Maple Avenue, then right on Elm Street.
Rock Road & Main Street: Left on Main Street, left on Rodney Street, right on Maple Avenue, then right on Elm Street.
  • Rock Road & Lincoln Avenue: Lincoln Avenue North to Bellair Road, right on Bellair Road, right on Ackerman Avenue, then to Maple Avenue.
  • Rock Road & Doremus Avenue: Left on Doremus Avenue, right on Ackerman Avenue, then to Maple Avenue.
  • Trains will be running throughout the construction period. However, according to the transit agency, delays should be expected on both the Main and Bergen lines. Some westbound Main Line trains will hit 10-15 minute delays between Hawthorne and Suffern. You might want to leave a bit earlier than usual.

    Those affected trains are:

    • Train No.1111, departing Hoboken at 10:38 a.m.
    • Train No. 1115, departing Hoboken at 12:38 p.m.
    • Train No. 1117, departing Hoboken at 1:43 p.m.

    A daytime pedestrian crossing will be set up on the south side of Rock Road by the train station. At the end of the day, that pathway will be closed and another footpath will be open at the pedestrian crossing gates. 

    Police, which will be stationed in the work area, ask that signs be obeyed for safety purposes. Blocked off areas are blocked off for a reason.

    Hi all, NJ Transit has now confirmed that there will be a pedestrian crossing in place during work hours as well. A daytime pedestrian crossing will be set up on the south side of Rock Road by the train station. At the end of the day, that pathway will be closed and another footpath will be open at the pedestrian crossing gates.

    James, Didn't see anything in the notice about this... Will the crossing be open during non-construction hours?
    James Kleimann August 07, 2012 at 08:48 PM
    Pretty sure it will be, Mark.
    Mark Ruckhaus August 07, 2012 at 11:17 PM
    Thanks, James.

    To clarify... There will only be pedestrian crossing after each workday has ended. Cars will not be permitted across the tracks throughout the entire construction project, even after the workday is over. A pathway will be setup so that pedestrians can cross while work is going on during the day, on the south side of Rock Rd near the train station.

    Which is it???? There will only be pedestrian crossing after each workday has ended OR A pathway will be setup so that pedestrians can cross while work is going on during the day
    James Kleimann August 08, 2012 at 03:44 PM
    Right, so the pathway will be set up during the work day on the south side of Rock by the train station. Additionally, during non-work hours there will be crossing allowed at a specific place(s). I don't know exactly where that might be yet. Vehicular traffic during work AND non-work hours will have to follow detours.

    The law “is stuck http://www.coachoutletmls.com in a Jim Crow-era time warp,” said Edward P.

Civil rights leaders, on the other hand, pointed http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlineau.com to the role the law played in the recent election, http://www.coachoutletuso.net with courts relying on it to block voter http://www.coachbagsoutletel.com identification requirements and cutbacks on early voting. http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com “In the midst of the recent assault on voter access, the http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com Voting Rights Act is playing a pivotal role beating http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net back discriminatory voting measures,” said Debo P. http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net Adegbile, the acting president of the NAACP Legal Defense http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com and Educational Fund.
