WOODLAND PARK/LITTLE FALLS, NJ – Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark at the Feb. 7 Borough Council meeting noted that he has been informed by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) that the Notch Road Bridge would be reopened to traffic by the end of the month.

The bridge closed on Sept. 8 and officials said at the time it would be closed for three to fourth months.  The closure is part of a multi-phase six-year interchange project to improve highway flow for Route 3, Route 46, Valley Road and Notch/Rifle Camp Road.

Notch Road Bridge connects Little Falls and Woodland Park and provides convenient access to Route 46 for area residents. It crosses over Route 46 and connects Notch Road with Rifle Camp Road and Lackawanna Avenue.

The reopening of the bridge will relieve traffic throughout the area due to the numerous detours, putting extra cars and trucks on to Lower Notch Road and Browertown Road.

Many residents expressed concern at a meeting with the DOT on Aug. 29 about extra truck traffic on Browertown Road. After the meeting, Steve Schapiro, NJDOT spokesman, said the reason trucks were diverted to Browertown instead of Lower Notch as Browertown Road's lanes are wider.
