On Thursday, November 30, 2023 and Friday, December 1, 2023, the Bergen County Road Department will be applying a high friction surface treatment to Washington Avenue (weather permitting) between Pascack Road and Meisten Street. The purpose of this is to enhance the safety of vehicular traffic travelling on this roadway. The following is a schedule and description of road closures:

Washington Avenue westbound will be closed from Pascack Road to a location approximately 50 feet west of Meisten St. Ingress and egress of vehicular traffic to Meisten St. will be limited during this time frame. At a certain point during the day, for approximately one (1) hour, no vehicles will be able to leave or enter Meisten St. Due to the nature of the project, an exact time frame for this hour is unknown but should be during the afternoon hours. If you need to leave your residence during this time we recommend you park your vehicle on Burke St. to avoid any complications.

2) Friday, December 1, 2023 – Hours of work will be from 7:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M. Washington Avenue eastbound will be closed from Jackson Avenue to Pascack Road.
