WOODBRIDGE—The New Jersey Department of Transportation today announced that a portion of Rahway Avenue (CR 514) in Woodbridge Township will be temporarily closed in order to rehabilitate a Conrail railroad grade crossing.
Rahway Avenue will close at the railroad crossing south of Burnet Street at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 4 and will reopen by 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 5.
The following detours will be implemented during the Rahway Avenue closure:
- Traffic on the Burnet Street side of Rahway Avenue will take Omar Avenue to Blair Road (CR 604) to Port Reading Avenue to Rahway Avenue.
- Traffic on the Rahway Avenue Park/Kings Court side of Rahway Avenue will take Port Reading Avenue to Blair Road to Omar Avenue to Rahway Avenue.
In order to provide a safer and smoother railroad crossing on Rahway Avenue, NJDOT will replace the existing freight rail crossing and repave the asphalt approaches. The cost of the work is $105,000.
This project is part of NJDOT’s ongoing railroad grade-crossing safety program, which repairs, upgrades or removes approximately 30 crossings each year. Real time traffic information is available at www.511nj.org
