NJDOT Traffic Advisory – Clinton Avenue Railroad Crossing Repairs
Clinton Avenue to be closed for railroad crossing repairs beginning this weekend in Northvale, Bergen County.
Necessary safety work will require detours
(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the start of a railroad crossing rehabilitation project that will require an eleven-day closure and detour of Clinton Avenue in Northvale, Bergen County. This work was originally scheduled to begin on Saturday, September 26.
Beginning at 7 a.m., Saturday, October 10, until 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 21, Clinton Avenue is scheduled to be closed and detoured in both directions at the railroad crossing between Briarwood Lane and Tappan Road. Construction will remove the existing railroad crossing and replace it with a new concrete crossing, as well as new asphalt approaches for a safer and smoother railroad crossing. Local access will be maintained for residents and businesses.
Traffic detours will be coordinated with the local police. The road will be reopened if work is completed earlier than planned.
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.
Helpful Voting Information for Bergen County Residents
Hackensack – The Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders have put together a video, which provides helpful voting information to Bergen County residents. This year - with few exceptions - Bergen County residents will be voting exclusively by mail. Working in conjunction with local election officials, the Freeholders compiled answers to the most frequently asked questions surrounding voting by mail. It is the goal of the Freeholders to increase turnout for the November election. It is their belief that regardless of which candidates residents choose, our Democracy is best served when we have an active and engaged electorate.

We would like to thank Inserra Supermarkets, Inc. for their very generous pledge to the Norwood Food Pantry. In this time of increasing local food insecurity, the company will contribute $1,000 worth of products to the pantry. On May 2 and thanks to the Northvale DPW, products with a value of $500 were picked up at the Northvale ShopRite and delivered to the new pantry drop off point at the Northvale American Legion.
The corporate and Northvale ShopRite staffs did a great job of matching the products contributed with the current needs of the pantry. Again, we thank Mr. Larry Inserra for making this happen.
The Norwood Food Pantry serves the needs of all Northern Valley towns.
