On Monday, November 7th, the city will begin milling and paving operations as part of the City’s 2022 Complete Streets and Resurfacing Program.

Construction is expected to last through early December, and will include 37 blocks on the following streets:

  • 8th Street from Willow Avenue to Hudson Street
  • 9th Street from Jefferson Street to Willow Avenue
  • 10th Street from Grand Street to Park Avenue
  • 11th Street from Adams Street to Willow Avenue
  • 12th Street from Jefferson Street to Adams Street
  • 13th Street from Madison Street to Adams Street
  • Adams Street from 12th Street to 13th Street
  • Jefferson Street from 11th Street to 12th Street
  • Madison Street from 12th Street to 13th Street

In addition to the streets above, Hudson County will begin milling and paving operations on or about November 15th on Park Avenue from Observer Highway to 16th Street.

These projects will include safety and accessibility improvements that will advance the city’s Vision Zero goal to eliminate traffic injuries and deaths by 2030.

Improvements include:49 high-visibility crosswalks, curb extensions, four raised intersections, four rectangular rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) signs, 49 corners with flexible bollards to improve intersection visibility (“daylighting”), 74 ADA-compliant curb ramps with detectable warning surfaces.

The city will post weekly construction updates online, including areas where parking is prohibited, which can be viewed here.

The roadway repaving and infrastructure upgrades are made possible through a partnership between the city and the county, with the city’s share funded share primarily through $1,652,071 in Municipal Aid grant funding.

Those come from two sources: the New Jersey Department of Transportation and the County’s share funded through New Jersey Department of Transportation’s County Aid Program.

So far this year, the city and county have constructed paving and complete streets improvements on more than 40 blocks of roadway, including:

  • 2nd Street between River Street and Clinton Street
  • 3rd Street between Park Avenue and Washington Street
  • 6th Street between Jackson Street and Madison Street
  • 14th Street between Washington Street and Hudson Street
  • Newark Street between Hudson Street and Sinatra Drive
  • River Street between Hudson Place and Newark Street
  • Garden Street between 12th Street and 2nd Street
  • Hudson Street between 15th Street and Observer Highway

Hudson Street improvements followed the completion of comprehensive water main infrastructure upgrades.

During this process, the city and Veolia replaced 2,700 linear feet of 6-inch diameter water mains with 12-inch diameter water mains and installed new valves, 10 new fire hydrants, and 150 new service lines along Hudson Street.
