BUS ROUTE RECONFIGURATION INFORMATION DURING CONSTRUCTION Effective immediately......Until construction is done on Pascack Rd by Seasons, the buses will be rerouted and will not be stopping by Seasons. They will now be turning right at Pascack Rd and Hillsdale Ave. So the new stop will be at the corner of Pascack Rd and Hillsdale Ave. The buses will then proceed on Hillsdale Ave and make a left on Weirmus Lane and then a left onto Washington Ave and then proceed to the GS Parkway. Sincerely, The Coach USA Team     Please click here for further clarification.
UPDATE:  Construction was set to begin 8/1 but there has been a slight supply chain delay pushing it out to 8/22 - work hours are 7am – 3:30pm,  Monday thru Friday.  Motorists are advised to avoid the intersection if possible and expect some delays during these times. *For the latest updates on road closures, please monitor the police department's social media as well as the Township's social media postings (links at top of page).  For construction plan details, visit here.

Construction is to begin Monday 8/1/22 starting at 7 am - 3:30pm Monday through Friday. The intersection project primarily involves widening the existing roadway and adding additional traffic lanes.

The majority of the work will take place behind the existing curb line thereby necessitating minimal disruptions to the existing roadway and traffic patterns during the construction.

When the majority of that work is completed, the existing curbs/curb lines will be removed and the new lanes and traffic patterns will be incorporated into the existing roadway with signage, signals and stripping.

The primary disruption will be the drainage portion of the project which will go across Washington Avenue between Pascack Road and Meisten Street.

There should be prior notice by the contractor with regard to that portion and the Police Dept. will make efforts to disseminate that information via signage at the scene and through their social media/website as well as the townships social media and website.
Any necessary detours will be created on a day-to-day basis based on the contractor’s needs for that day.

The existing traffic pattern will be restored at the end of each day’s construction.

The Police Department will make efforts to disseminate information received from the contractor regarding required detours or road closures via signage and social media/website as soon as it is provided.

We ask residents to please try to avoid the intersection if possible during working hours.

The completion date of this project is expected to be 01/28/2023 as per the County (see letter to the left)
