Route 35 is one busy artery in Woodbridge, and it's going to be closed for repairs to the railroad grade crossing.
Conrail announced that Route 35 - also known as Amboy Avenue a bit further south and St. Georges Avenue at the railroad intersection - will be closed for repairs on Sunday, October 21st from 7 am until Monday, October 22, at 6 pm.
That will probably make traffic throughout this part of the township a nightmare.
Those tracks, which are used for freight, are being replaced, and Conrail also said that the road-level crossing will be upgraded. The grading is located near the Kings Garden Apartments and the Woodbridge Main Library.
Improvements, they said, will consist of a new concrete railroad crossing, upgrades and improvements to the sidewalks at the crossing.
Meanwhile, motorists will have to figure a way around the road closure. Detour signs will be posted, according to town officials.
Drivers traveling northbound should use Green Street, to Route 9 North, and loop back to Route 35. Those going southbound can use posted detour signs to Route 9 and back onto Green Street.
