News & Announcements from the Fort Lee Police Department
- Published on 09 May 2014
Upcoming Work Week of: May 12th thru May 16th
Expected Location: Main Street between Linwood Avenue and just east of Anderson Avenue
In an effort to keep our community informed of the changing traffic conditions on Main Street the Fort Lee Police Department will be providing weekly construction updates. There Gas Main Project is currently underway. The Force Main Sewer Project has not been started. Traffic patterns are subject to change based on the work being performed. A construction company for PSE&G is currently on Main Street at the intersection of Anderson Avenue installing a gas line. Due to amount of utilities in the roadway under the eastbound lanes, the construction was forced to dig around it into the westbound lanes and will dig back into the eastbound lanes after the intersection. The foreman advised they can dig anywhere from 10 feet to 80 feet a day depending on the rock they hit which is time consuming to dig through. At this point, they have hit rock in the westbound lanes and are working hard to get through It is very difficult to estimate the time it will take to get back in the eastbound lanes.
