Railroad-crossing repairs begin in Glen Rock

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 a seven-day closure and detour of Harristown Road in Glen Rock, Bergen County.

Beginning at 7 a.m., Thursday, September 27, until 7 p.m., Thursday, October 3, Harristown Road will be closed and detoured in both directions between Glen Avenue and Stonefield Road. Harristown Road will be open to local traffic only. The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approach.

The following detours will be in place:

Harristown Road eastbound

  • Vehicles traveling eastbound on Harristown Road will be directed to turn left onto Maple Avenue
  • Turn right onto Rock Road
  • Turn right onto Ackerman Avenue
  • Continue onto Harristown Road

Harristown Road westbound

  • Vehicles wanting to travel westbound on Harristown Road will be directed to turn right onto Ackerman Avenue
  • Turn left onto Rock Road
  • Turn left onto Maple Avenue
  • Continue onto Harristown Road

The traffic 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 Glen Rock, Bergen County, 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 that 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.
