The Wyckoff Police Department has been informed by the NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT) and the New York Susquehanna & Western Railway Corp. that three railroad crossings in Midland Park will be upgraded in July 2014.
NJDOT and the Railroad have provided the following approximate schedule which is weather dependent:
- Newtown Road July 14 Anticipated length 5 days (Monday - Friday)
- Wyckoff & Goffle July 24 Anticipated length 8 days (Thursday - Thursday)
- Sicomac Road August 22 Anticipated length 5 days (Friday - following Thursday)
All of the road closures are full closures for 24 hours during the construction period. The Wyckoff Avenue and Goffle Road construction will be for eight consecutive days including Saturday and Sunday. The hours of construction work are 7am to 7pm.
All of these locations will have posted detours. Affected motorists should simply follow the detour route and anticipate delays and plan for more travel time. During the construction at Wyckoff Avenue and Goffle Road, right turns will be allowed during construction traveling from Wyckoff Avenue to Goffle Road, and left turns will be allowed traveling from Goffle Road to Wyckoff Avenue. All other turning movements at Wyckoff Avenue and Goffle Road will be prohibited by the road closure.
The Goffle Road construction will impact the commuter NJ Transit bus operations. The DOT has communicated with NJ Transit. It is anticipated that the same stops will be made along Goffle Road but times may be affected. If your business commute includes accessing public transportation located within the work zones listed above, please contact your bus company to determine the alternate pick-up location during the road closing/detour.
Motorists should expect significant delays; plan an alternate route, plan on extra travel time and drive with caution. Please drive carefully and drive with caution. Thank you for your cooperation.
