Bloomfield Avenue Bridge Project

As work continues on the Bloomfield Avenue bridge spanning Montclair and Glen Ridge, a new traffic pattern was put in place on November 3. The two eastbound lanes have been reopened. The westbound left lane is open but the right lane is closed for curb/sidewalk repair and minor electrical work. This final phase of construction is anticipated to last approximately one month.

Pedestrian access to the bridge is restored on the eastbound side only; the pedestrian shuttle service has been eliminated.

Street Improvement Projects

Projects Start: Friday, November 8 (weather permitting)

  • Orange Road from Bloomfield Avenue to Hillside Avenue/Church Street (milling and paving)
  • South Park Street from Church Street to The Crescent (milling and paving)

Milling

The roadway will be open to traffic once milling operations and all cleanup has been completed. Expect delays due to the contractor’s activity if driving through the work area. Once milling has been completed, please use caution while driving or walking in these areas as the manholes will be raised. Paving will be completed within 5 to 7 days.

Paving

The roadway will remain closed to traffic for 4 to 6 hours after paving while the asphalt cools. No vehicles will be permitted on the roadway until the barricades are removed.

Police officers will be directing traffic during the milling and paving operations.
