TRENTON, NJ — Fisk Avenue in Brielle is scheduled to be closed at the railroad crossing between Brielle Avenue and Perry Place from Thursday, June 1 to Friday, June 9. A temporary walkway will allow for pedestrian and cyclist traffic.

The existing railroad crossing will be removed and replaced with a new concrete crossing and asphalt approach in order to provide safer and smoother railroad crossing, according to the N.J. Department of Transportation (DOT).

The following detours, to be coordinated with the Brielle police,  will be in place through June 9, unless the work is completed earlier:
