route 3 passaic river crossing project graphic

Construction Updates

The project is located in Rutherford and Lyndhurst, Bergen County, and the City of Clifton in Passaic County. The project design proposes four main construction stages and includes replacement of the existing movable Route 3 Bridge over the Passaic River with a fixed bridge and associated roadway work from Main Avenue in Clifton to Route 17 in Rutherford. This work also redesigns Route 3, including shoulders and ramps, to meet current design standards.

Improvements to Route 3 will serve to eliminate the tendency for through traffic to use local streets due to congestion on Route 3. During construction, three lanes of traffic in each direction will be maintained on
Route 3 similar to the previous widening of the Route 3 Bridge over Berry's Creek in the mid-1990s.

Construction notices and traffic advisories can be found on the 511NJ Travel Information web site.
