CLARK, NJ — Motorists crossing the railroad tracks on Westfield Avenue this week were surprised to find signs warning of a road closure beginning Nov. 10. 

While the crossing is slated for repair, Clark Chief of Police Pedro Matos said the project had been delayed until spring, 2017.  

“Not sure why that sign was put up,” Matos said on Thursday morning.

The answer came later in the day on Thursday. The Clark police department posted the following explanation on their Facebook page:

“Apparently the sign department over at Conrail did not get the memo,” the post read. “The signs will be removed.”

Matos said motorists should expect a three-day closure when the project to replace the crossing’s concrete begins in the spring.

Traffic in the area had just returned to normal after a months-long project to realign the intersection at Terminal Avenue.
