HOBOKEN AND WEEHAWKEN — Hudson County will resume the rehabilitation of the Park Avenue bridge between Hoboken and Weehawken on Sunday, October 30, 2016 at 8 p.m.
Construction was previously suspended due to an executive order from Governor Christie related to the Transportation Trust Fund. There had also been many complaints from residents about the traffic tie-ups during daytime construction. Thus, construction has been moved to night-time.
Work is planned to take place Sunday to Thursday nights from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and Friday nights from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. to allow for the later traffic flow out of the city of Hoboken.
The Park Avenue bridge will be closed to traffic in both directions during construction hours. Work will not be done on Saturday night, and the bridge will be re-opened to two-way traffic during daytime hours.
Hudson County will also start construction to replace a section of Sinatra Drive North between 14th Street and 15th Street on Oct 27.
The project will result in the following street closures:
-Sinatra Drive North will be closed from 14th Street to Shipyard Lane.
-14th Street between Shipyard Lane and Sinatra Drive North will only be open eastbound (closed westbound)
-Sinatra Drive North between 14th Street and Constitution Court will only be open southbound (closed northbound)
The Park Avenue Bridge will remain open evenings beginning Thanksgiving Eve through that holiday weekend. Work will then start again on Monday night November 28. On Christmas and New Years, since both holidays fall on Sunday, it will be observed as a holiday on the following Monday. So there will be no Monday evening work but instead construction will resume on Tuesday evening.
