Moore Street to be closed and detoured for railroad-crossing repairs in Hackensack, Bergen County

Necessary safety work will require detours

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

Beginning at 7 a.m., Monday, July 29, until 7 p.m., Friday, August 2, Moore Street will be closed and detoured in both directions between River Street and Main Street. The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approaches. The following detours will be in place:

Moore Street southbound

  • Motorists wishing to travel southbound on Moore Street will be directed to take East Salem Street
  • Turn right onto River Street
  • Turn right onto East Mercer Street
  • Continue towards Moore Street

Moore Street northbound

  • Motorists wishing to travel northbound on Moore Street will be directed to turn left onto East Mercer Street
  • Turn right onto State Street
  • Turn right onto Salem Street
  • Back to Moore Street

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 Hackensack, 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. 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 or on the NJDOT Facebook page.
