Railroad-crossing repairs begin this weekend
on Main Street in Hackensack

Necessary safety work will require road closure and detours

(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced a railroad crossing rehabilitation project that will require the closure and detour of Main Street in Hackensack, Bergen County.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday, September 17, until 7p.m. Tuesday, September 26, the two-way traffic on Main Street is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing between Terrace Place and Linden Street. The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approach. The following detours will remain in place:

Main Street northbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling northbound on Main Street will be directed to make a right onto University Plaza
  • Make a left onto Hackensack Avenue
  • Make a left onto Temple Avenue
  • Continue to Main Street 

Main Street southbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling southbound on Main Street will be directed to make a left onto Temple Avenue 
  • Make a right onto Hackensack Avenue
  • Make a right onto University Plaza
  • Continue to Main Street
The detour 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 Hackensack, 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.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weatheror other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
