Traffic and Travel Advisories
Jersey City is only 14.7 square miles in area, but it contains over a hundred miles in roads. Normally it’s pretty simple to get from one place to another, and while the City encourages people to use our many public transportation options, sometimes you do just have to take the car.
Usually, traffic flows pretty well. There are those occasions, however, whether planned or unplan- ned, which cause street closings and traffic diversions. Lets face it—whether you’re commuting to work, visiting the in-laws, or just trying to get the kids to school on time, it’s helpful to know which routes to avoid and which ones to take before you set out. Check out the links below for current traffic and travel advisories.
DRIVERS URGED TO CONSIDER ALTERNATE ROUTES AS REPAIRS CONTINUE IN SOUTHWEST HOBOKEN; TRAFFIC PATTERN CHANGES IN EFFECT
United Water crews continue to work on repairs at the corner of Jackson Street and Newark Street. Repairs are expected to continue at least through Friday evening, so drivers are strongly urged to anticipate significant delays in southwest Hoboken, provide extra travel time, and avoid the area if possible by considering alternate routes through northern Hoboken.
The City of Hoboken OEM and Police Department coordinated with Jersey City, Port Authority, NJ Transit and County police agencies to develop a traffic management plan. Drivers are advised of the following traffic pattern changes for this evening:
• Marin Boulevard will be changed to all lanes northbound, with no lanes southbound. All vehicles
from Marin Blvd will be directed east onto Observer Highway.
• Grove Street will be changed to all lanes southbound, with no lanes northbound.
• Harrison Street will remain open southbound onto Jersey Avenue.
• Monroe Street traffic will be directed southbound through Grove Street.
The traffic changes are designed to simplify routes into and out of Hoboken and minimize conflicts at intersections. Police officers from all agencies will be on hand to direct traffic. Newark Street is closed west of Monroe Street and Jersey Avenue is closed north of 18th Street in Jersey City.
Night Time Tonnele Avenue Closures for Road Work
New Jersey Department Of Transportation (NJDOT) will have nightly lane closures from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. the following morning on the north bound lanes of Tonnele Avenue from Carlton Avenue to Secaucus Road beginning tonight, April 30, 2013, and continuing for the rest of this week to construct curb, sidewalk, ADA ramps, and drainage repairs.
NJDOT will continue with work on the southbound side beginning next week, May 5th, where they will mill and pave the northbound travel lanes immediately afterward. Southbound lanes do not need to be resurfaced.
One lane of traffic will be open at all times, according to a NJDOT spokesperson.
