Sewer line repair on Route 440 to impact traffic
Due to a potential catastrophic failure of sewer lines in Jersey City on Route 440 and Danforth Avenue, emergency work to repair these lines is scheduled to begin next week. This work is complex and will cause a traffic shutdown on the Route 440 corridor, according to Mayor James Davis.
Bayonne will be impacted by this shutdown, as traffic will be rerouted, mostly to the NJ Turnpike. Work on the northbound side of Route 440 and Danforth Ave, which is the side which will mostly impact Bayonne, will take approximately seven days once it begins.
Work is scheduled to begin towards the end of next week. Traffic impacts after the first seven days may continue in this area, due to work on the southbound side of Route 440.
