Lettiere Announces Repairs of Logan Township Rail Crossing


(Logan Township) New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Commissioner Jack Lettiere announced the replacement of the railroad crossing on Center Square Road (CR640) in Logan Township.   The $85,000 project, which rehabilitated the aging Conrail rail crossing and included removing the old crossing and upgrading to a new concrete crossing, was completed today.   The project included erecting warning signs and pavement markings to alert motorists.

“Governor McGreevey's Safety First Initiative is a comprehensive effort to use engineering, education and enforcement to make our roads safer,” said Lettiere.   “The safety investment we have made in Logan Township is a prime example of the engineering fixes that are central to the Governor's Initiative.”

The project began on August 4, 2004 and was completed the following day.   The contractor, JMG Construction of Pottstown, PA, had detours in place to reroute traffic.

NJDOT repairs and rehabilitates existing railroad crossings throughout the State as a part of its Safety Improvement Program.   Annually, NJDOT invests $4 million in the repair and upgrading of railroad crossings, signs and warning lights, and improved visibility and striping, all designed to enhance motorist safety.   In addition to this investment in Logan Township, NJDOT has fully rehabilitated railroad crossings in Edison, Woodbridge, Paulsboro, Carney's Point, Cape May.

“With $7 billion worth of goods flowing through New Jersey annually, New Jersey is one of the most important commercial corridors in the country,” said Lettiere.   “Our goal is to ensure the safe and efficient transport of these goods from our ports to the marketplace, and we strive to do so with as minimal an impact on local communities as possible.”
