conrail rt 9 lakewood tlsThe 2014 derailed construction plan for the Route 9 tracks will be taking place this weekend.

The work was intended to take place during two weekdays last November, but officials quickly scratched that plan after the backlash it received due to the mess it would have caused.

The closure will begin at 5 PM tomorrow evening, November 6, and reopen at 7 AM Sunday morning, the NJDOT tells TLS.

Conrail is replacing the rail crossing at Route 9 between John Street and Central Avenue.


Route #9 south bound – All traffic will be detoured west on Central Avenue to Cross Street and then back out to Route #9 south.


Route #9 north bound (Commercial Truck Traffic) will be detoured to Oak Street to New Hampshire Avenue to Cedarbridge Avenue to South Clifton Avenue onto Route #88 and back onto Route#9 North.

Route #9 north bound (Vehicular Traffic) will be detoured at Pine Street to New Hampshire Avenue to Cedarbridge Avenue to South Clifton Avenue to Route #88 and back onto Route #9 north.
