UPDATE: Road Closures Continue Near Hoboken Terminal for DEP Flood Protection Project – Effective Immediately

Sewer work will continue in South Hoboken, adjacent to the intersection of Hudson Street and Observer Highway, for a New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) flood-protection project. During this time, pedestrian foot traffic and certain NJ TRANSIT bus routes in Hoboken will be temporarily impacted.

This project is designed to divide portions of the existing combined sewer system into separate sanitary and stormwater lines in order to improve the physical, ecological, economic and social resilience in regions affected by Superstorm Sandy. Visit the “Rebuild By Design – Hudson River” page for further details on this project.

Pedestrian Traffic near Hoboken Terminal:

  • During construction, customers traveling to/from Hoboken Terminal are strongly advised to allow for extra travel time as pedestrian ingress and egress paths will be modified during work hours to accommodate road construction. Walkway detours will occur predominately at the intersection of Hudson Street and Observer Highway near the bus lanes at Hoboken Terminal while construction takes place in the area. ADA ingress/egress will not be restricted during these adjustments. For your safety, please obey all posted signs, and do not travel through barricaded areas.

Bus Detours:

  • During work hours, temporary road closures and detours may take place near 14th and Washington streets, Sinatra Drive, Newark Street, River Street, Hudson Street and Hudson Place, including the intersection of Hudson Street and Observer Highway in Hoboken. Bus customers should allow for extra travel time and check Travel Alerts & Advisories before starting their trip to see if their bus route is affected and if any bus detours are active.

We appreciate your patience during this project.

Customers are encouraged to monitor Travel Alerts & Advisories, sign up for My Transit Alerts, download the NJ TRANSIT app and follow us on Social Media for the latest service information.
