Railroad-crossing repairs announced in Pompton Lakes

Necessary safety work will require road closures on Wanaque Avenue next week

(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced a planned railroad crossing repair project that will require the temporary closure of Wanaque Avenue next week in Pompton Lakes, Passaic County.

Wanaque Street is scheduled to be closed to traffic in both directions at the freight rail crossing from 9 a.m. on Monday, October 21, until around 7 p.m. on Friday, October 25. Traffic will be detoured using Hamburg Turnpike and Ringwood Avenue.

Access will be maintained to residential properties and businesses on either side of the rail line. If the work is completed earlier, the roadway will be reopened accordingly.

In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossings in Hackensack the freight rail contractor will replace the existing crossing with a new full depth concrete panel rail crossing system, install new tracks and repave the asphalt approaches. This project is included within NJDOT’s railroad grade-crossing safety program which repairs, upgrades or removes approximately 30 crossings each year, statewide.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information.
