HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ – Changes to traffic patterns around Lincoln School were announced at the Hasbrouck Heights Town Council meeting Tuesday night. Councilman Ron Kistner presented the Police Department report submitted by Chief Michael Colaneri.
Families getting ready to return to Lincoln School will need to learn new traffic patterns for morning drop offs and afternoon pick-ups. The following changes to traffic patterns were announced for parents and motorists:
- Ottawa Avenue between Burton Avenue and Terrace Avenue will be closed to through traffic from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Burton Avenue Northbound from LaSalle Ave to Ottawa Avenue will be closed after the morning drop off.
- Burton Avenue Southbound from Bell Avenue to Paterson Avenue will be closed after the morning drop off.
Paterson Avenue between Terrace Avenue and Burton Avenue will remain closed off to 8:00 a.m to 4 p.m.
Chief Colaneri said that safety is the reason for all the new road closures.
"Ottawa is being closed for safety reasons as it is is a narrow street and we are trying to limit traffic near Lincoln School," he said. "Burton Avenue closure is also for safety reasons to create a one block buffer from traffic heading toward the front of Lincoln School, especially when children are outside playing during lunch."
