New NJ overpass to enhance safety

Posted on October 21, 2008

New Jersey has broken ground on a new bridge in North Bergen that will separate 69th Street from an existing freight railroad corridor, enhancing safety and improving traffic flow at a busy intersection.

The bridge will be built to carry motor vehicle traffic on 69th Street over the six-track freight railroad operated by CSX Transportation and the New York Susquehanna & Western Railroad. In addition, the bridge will accommodate future NJ Transit passenger rail service on the Northern Branch.

In addition to a new roadway bridge, the project includes related roadway and drainage improvements. As part of the project, NJ Transit will construct temporary bypass roads; rebuild parts of 69th Street and build a retaining wall; reconstruct roadways, curbs, sidewalks and driveways within the project limits; and install traffic signs at two intersections.

The project is expected to be completed by 2011.
