CLARK, NJ – The Westfield Avenue railroad crossing will close for construction on Monday, May 8 at 7 a.m. and last through Thursday evening, May 11, Clark police announced Wednesday.  Construction of the crossing, maintained by Conrail, will close this section of Westfield Avenue down entirely until work is completed. 

"The railroad crossing will be closed Monday through Thursday of next week, 24 hours a day," said Clark Chief of Police Pedro Matos.  "That's a complete road closure at that point."

According to Victor Fonseca, a terminal engineer with Conrail, New Jersey Department of Transportation is funding the project.  He said large potholes in the crossing have made the reconstruction necessary.

Heavy rains could complicate the timeline and cause a delayed reopening, Fonseca said, although he does not foresee any other issues with the four-day projection.

The road closure is expected to cause heavy delays throughout the area.  Motorists are urged to find other routes during construction.
