Detours


The rehabilitation of the Hoboken and Conrail Viaducts (Route 139 Upper and Lower Roadways) requires the detour of Route 139 eastbound between Summit Avenue and Palisade Avenue. A temporary roadway has been constructed adjacent to Route 139 between Oakland Avenue and Palisade Avenue to carry eastbound detoured traffic. A series of intersection closures is also planned. Affected intersections will be closed in stages. Detour routes will accommodate pedestrians, motorists and public transit.

Route 139 eastbound detour (Ongoing)

Traffic traveling eastbound on the Route 139 Upper Roadway will be detoured onto Summit Avenue, left onto Hoboken Avenue and proceed onto the temporary roadway eastward (between Oakland and Palisade Avenues).
