West New York’s Parking Deck Project will begin this month, the Parking Services Department announced.

Phase I will entail the redevelopment of the 51st Street Lot, creating over 300 new spaces.

The 51st Street Parking Lot closed on June 27 and will remain closed for about a year.

The town said it “wholeheartedly understands that this will be a burden to many residents and establishments that depend on this lot… we understand this temporary disruption will be an inconvenience.”

Alternative parking has been secured. Call Parking Services for further information at 201.295.1575 or email parkinginfo@westnewyorknj.org.

More in the works?

More lots will likely be upgraded as part of Phase II.

iMayor Gabriel Rodriguez and his administration have been eyeing The initiative to improve parking lots and upgrade them into parking decks since before he was elected.
