BREAKING NEWS: Traffic signal retiming scheduled for Nov. 23

Public Safety Commissioner Robert Giangeruso has addressed Lyndhurst safety concerns due to operational issues caused by the new traffic signal at Route 21 at Park Avenue (Nutley) that are spilling back across the bridge to Lyndhurst.

Commissioner Giangeruso called upon the New Jersey Department of Transportation to revisit the signal timing intervals at the new traffic light across the Passaic River that is causing excessive westbound delays on the DeJessa Bridge (Avondale Bridge).

Based on a coordination meeting at the NJDOT field office, and as proposed by Bergen County Engineering staff, the Lyndhurst and Nutley traffic signals will be retimed to better synchronize traffic flow across the DeJessa Bridge.

The signal retiming is scheduled to occur on or about Wednesday, Nov. 23.
