Beaver Brook Road in Lincoln Park is Target of State DOT Rail Project
A 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:
West of Beaver Brook Road
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.
