69TH STREET GRADE SEPARATION
The project requires the design and construction of a bridge to grade separate 69th Street in North Bergen from CSX and NYS&W freight railroads and future rail passenger service. Project will include, a new four span bridge with retained fill approaches; raising West Side Ave. approximately five feet; utility relocations; property acquisitions and easements; and, infrastructure changes.
Anticipated completion – Summer 2012
Separating current freight service and potential passenger rail service from auto traffic, facilitates operations and creates a safer environment for motorists. It can also eliminate the need for grade crossings in a community and the resulting traffic impacts.
