Route 4 Pedestrian Safety Project

The state Department of Transportation recently announced a project to improve pedestrian safety and mobility at several locations on and around highly-traveled Route 4 in Teaneck.

NJDOT’s contractor, New Prince Concrete Construction, Inc., has begun preliminary construction, including sign installation and site mobilization, requiring periodic daytime shoulder closures.

Improvements to be made in Teaneck include the installation of new sidewalks, ADA-compliant crosswalks and curb ramps, pedestrian countdown signal heads and various other pedestrian safety improvement features along sections of Route 4 and the local roadway system at:

  • River Road interchange near Fairleigh Dickinson University
  • Teaneck Road interchange
  • numerous locations in the vicinity of Faragut Drive/Webster Avenue/Alfred Avenue and Decatur Avenue
  • corner of Sussex Road and Billington Road, a block north of Route 4

NJDOT will utilize temporary traffic control devices such as a concrete barrier throughout the project to minimize the impact to the motoring public.  Single lane closures are allowed overnight, however the contractor will perform the majority of work alongside the highly-traveled state highway, so impacts are expected to be minimal.

The $846,000 state-funded project, advanced in response to Teaneck’s request to address pedestrian mobility needs, is scheduled to be completed in late spring 2014.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.  Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information Web site, www.511nj.org, for construction updates and real-time travel information.
