According to Captain Thomas Yurkin, this County project must be completed as the culvert is failing and needs immediate attention. Detour signs will be erected in order for motorists to navigate through the area. The detour route will increase traffic on S. Washington Avenue, Woodbine Street, Windsor Road, W. Clinton Avenue, and S. Prospect Avenue, Yurkin added. Motorists have the choice of utilizing W. Clinton Avenue or the State Street Bridge in Teaneck in order to avoid the project location. Motorists should allow additional time when traveling in these areas of town. Local businesses on New Bridge Road will remain open as this project will not require roads to be closed affecting any businesses. Motorists will still be able to drive to a business on New Bridge Road, they just have to detour around the closed bridge.
Once completed, not only will the new bridge be a benefit, but the addition of an eastbound lane from Windsor Road to the entrance of Pathmark allowing motorists to travel directly into the Pathmark lot. The project also calls for new traffic signals at the intersection of New Bridge Road and Windsor Road, providing a safer intersection for pedestrians, Yurkin explained.
As more information is received regarding this road closure, the Borough website will be updated.
Motorists requiring any additional information should contact the Bergenfield Police Department Traffic Bureau at 201-387-4000 ext. 4008.
