TRENTON — The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) announced a planned railroad crossing repair project will require the temporary closure of Lower Road in Linden.
Lower Road will be closed to traffic from 7:00 a.m. Thursday, June 20 to 7:00 p.m. Friday, June 21. Traffic will be detoured using South Stiles Street, West Edgar Avenue, and Avenue C. If the work is completed earlier, the roadways will be reopened accordingly.
In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossings in Linden the freight rail contractor will replace the existing crossings with new concrete freight rail crossings and repave the asphalt approaches. These projects are included within NJDOT’s railroad grade-crossing safety program which 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 construction updates and real-time travel information.
