4. OGDEN AVENUE RAILROAD CROSSING IN ROCKAWAY
Beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, October 31, Ogden Avenue is scheduled to be closed permanently to vehicular and pedestrian traffic between Jackson Avenue and Drake Avenue, at the railroad grade crossing. Plantings, curbing and guide rail will be installed to buffer the railroad from outside access.



The traffic detours will be coordinated with the local police. If work is completed earlier, the roadways will be reopened accordingly.

In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossing in Morris County, 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 weatheror 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.
