ATTENTION COMMUTERS AND DRIVERS: Lower Washington Street will be milled and paved this coming week


HOBOKEN — Maybe you’re fed up with heading to work in the morning, being delayed by construction, and raising your fists to the sky, yelling, “No one told me about this!!”
So, here you go….
Milling and paving of four blocks of Washington Street between Observer Highway and Third Street is scheduled to take place the week of Dec. 4, weather permitting.
Expected hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
According to the press release from the city, “Efforts will be made to maintain vehicular traffic where possible, however, road closures will be required at times.”
During construction, NJ Transit buses will operate on a detour. Buses heading toward Hoboken Terminal will travel south along Washington Street, detour east on Fifth Street, and south on Hudson Street. Buses heading towards New York will leave the bus terminal from Observer Highway, turn north on Bloomfield Street, turn east on Fifth Street, and continue north on Washington Street along the regular route.
To facilitate bus detours, parking will be prohibited on both sides of Fifth Street between Bloomfield Street and Hudson Street as well as on both sides of Bloomfield Street near Observer Highway and Hudson Street near Fifth Street. Police will be on hand to help direct traffic.
