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.
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.
