ABERDEEN TOWNSHIP POLICE
The New Jersey Department of Transportation along with New Jersey Transit, will be proceeding with a railroad crossing repair and resurfacing project on Atlantic Avenue. This project will be located at the railroad crossing in the Township of Aberdeen between Schindler Drive and Railroad Plaza. This project will have a major impact on vehicle traffic on Atlantic Avenue between Lower Main Street and State Highway 34.
The Aberdeen Township Police Department has been advised that this project is set to begin on Thursday October 11th at 7:00 AM and should last until October 18th at 7:00 PM. However, weather and unforeseen conditions may extend the work schedule and traffic conditions.
In order to complete this work in a safe and efficient manner, Atlantic Avenue will be closed during this project at the intersections of Schindler Drive and Railroad Plaza to ALL vehicular traffic traveling in BOTH directions. This includes emergency vehicles as well.
A full detour plan has been established and approved and has been posted along the roadways in our area. We understand that this will affect traffic in multiple jurisdictions, so we are asking the public to plan an alternate route while this project is taking place. If you have a social media account please share this message with family, friends and co-workers who live and work in this area.
It should be noted that this will not affect either train station parking lots in Aberdeen and Matawan or the NJ Transit Train schedules.
For further and future updates to this project please check www.aberdeennj.org or follow both the Township of Aberdeen and Aberdeen Township Police Department on Facebook. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact the Township of Aberdeen Police Department, Operations Division Lieutenant Matthew Lloyd #70 at 732-583-4200 ext 222 or Matthew.firstname.lastname@example.org .
