TRENTON — The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced that a portion of Bordentown Avenue (CR 615) in Sayreville will be temporarily closed in order to rehabilitate a Conrail railroad grade crossing.
Bordentown Avenue will close at the railroad crossing by Jernee Mill Road (CR 675) at 7:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 7 and will reopen by 5 p.m. Thursday, July 8.
The following detours will be implemented during the Bordentown Avenue closure:
- Northbound motorists will use Jernee Mill Road to Washington Road (CR 535) to Ernston Road (CR 673) to Bordentown Avenue.
- Southbound motorists will Ernston Road to Washington Road to Jernee Mill Road to Bordentown Avenue.
Local access will be maintained on Bordentown Avenue between Ernston Road and the railroad crossing.
In order to provide a safer and smoother railroad crossing on Bordentown Avenue, NJDOT will replace the existing crossing with a new concrete freight rail crossing and repave the asphalt approaches. The cost of the work is $125,000.
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
