Beginning at 7 a.m., Monday, August 7, until 7p.m. Wednesday, Augusts 9, the two-way traffic on New Brooklyn Road is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing between North Grove Street and A.C.

New Brooklyn Road northbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling north on New Brooklyn Road will be directed to make a left onto North Grove Street
  • Make a right onto Williamstown New Freedom Road

Williamstown New Freedom Road/New Brooklyn Road southbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling south on Williamstown New Freedom Road to New Brooklyn Road will be directed to continue on Williamstown Road to North Grove Street
  • Make left onto North Grove Street
  • Continue to New Brooklyn Road

The detours will be coordinated with the local police. If work is completed earlier, the roadway will be reopened accordingly.

In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossing in Winslow, the existing crossings will be replaced with new concrete crossings and new asphalt approaches. This federally-funded project is included within NJDOT’s railroad grade-crossing safety program which repairs, upgrades, or removes approximately 30 crossings each year, statewide.
