Beaver Brook Road in Lincoln Park is Target of State DOT Rail Project

Rail Crossing signA railroad crossing rehabilitation project that will require a week long closure and detour of Beaver Brook Road in Lincoln Park will start this morning (Thursday, May 4), the New Jersey Department of Transportation has  announced.

Beginning at 7 a.m. today and through Thursday, May 11, the two-way traffic on Beaver Brook Road is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing between Bog and Vly Lane, and Windsor Drive. The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approach.

Motorists may take either of two detours:

East of Beaver Brook Road Rail Crossing Repairs Start in Lincoln Park -- Expect Detours and Delays

  • Beaver Brook Road traffic heading northeast will be directed to take Route 202/Boonton Turnpike northbound
  • Make a right on Comly Road/CR511A northbound
  • Continue northbound on Comly Road
  • Make a left onto Ryerson Road/Lincoln Park Road
  • Bear left onto Boulevard/CR511A
  • Make another left at Jacksonville Road/CR504 and follow to Beaver Brook Road
  • Traffic heading south would use the reverse route

OR

West of Beaver Brook Road

  • Beaver Brook Road traffic heading northwest will be directed to stay on Route 202/Main Street westbound
  • Make a right onto Route 202/Firehouse Road
  • Make another right onto Main Road/CR655A
  • Make a left onto Jacksonville Road/CR504 and follow to Beaver Brook Road
  • Traffic heading south would use the reverse route

Rail Crossing Repairs Start in Lincoln Park -- Expect Detours and DelaysThe traffic detours will be coordinated with the local police. If work is completed earlier, the roadway will be reopened accordingly.

In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossing in Lincoln Park, the existing crossings will be replaced with new concrete crossings and new asphalt approaches. This federally-funded project is 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 real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
