BERNARDSVILLE – Due to repair work being conducted by NJ Transit, the railroad crossing on Whitenack Road will be closed to all traffic starting at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 9, for 24-72 hours.

The railroad crossing closure will impact a detour route that has been in place for the Mount Airy Road (County Route 525) reconstruction project. NJ Transit will temporarily modify the existing detour. Instead of using Whitenack Road, cars will be guided toMeeker Road, while trucks will be directed to Liberty Corner Road via Mine Brook Road and Douglas Road.

The reconstruction work on Mount Airy Road, between Oakley and Prospect streets, is expected to be completed by the end of November. For more information on this project, visit the project page on the county website at
