Station Road Safety Work Will Require Road Closure and Detour

Rail Crossing signThe New Jersey Department of Transportation today announced that a railroad crossing rehabilitation project, which will require the closure and detour of Station Road in Denville, will begin Friday morning, Aug. 18, at 7 a.m. and continue through Tuesday, Aug. 29.

Two-way traffic on Station Road is scheduled to be closed between Lackawanna Avenue/Parks Road and East Main Street/Route 53, before the railroad grade crossing.

To provide a safer and smoother railroad crossing in Denville, the existing crossing 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.NJ DOT logo
