HANOVER— New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced a railroad crossing rehabilitation project that will require the closure and detour of Eden Lane in Hanover, Morris County.

Beginning at 7:00 a.m. Monday, November 6, until 7:00 p.m. Friday, November 10, the two-way traffic on Eden Lane is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing intersection between Boulevard Road and South Jefferson Road. The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approach. The following detours will remain in place:

Eden Lane eastbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling eastbound to Eden Lane will be directed south on Ridgedale Avenue
    Turn left onto Cedar Knolls Road
    Turn left onto South Jefferson Road
    Continue to Eden Lane

Eden Lane westbound Detour:

  • Motorists traveling westbound to Eden Lane will be directed south on South Jefferson Road
    Turn right onto Cedar Knolls Road
    Turn right onto Ridgedale Avenue
    Continue to Eden Lane

The detour will be coordinated with the local police.

In order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossings in Hanover, the existing crossings will be replaced with new concrete crossings and new asphalt approaches. This federally-funded project is included within NJDOT’s railroad grade-crossing safety program, which repairs, upgrades, or removes approximately 30 crossings each year, statewide.

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 website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
