9/17/2014 - NJDOT ANNOUNCES TIMELINE FOR HOBART AVE OVERPASS REPAIRS

SUMMIT, N.J., September 17, 2014 - Officials from the NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT) have confirmed to the City that work to repair damage to the Hobart Avenue Overpass of Route 24 will begin tonight.  The use of newly developed heat-straightening technology to make the repairs will enable the project to be completed within a two week time period.

“The Hobart Bridge closure is a major travel impediment for all residents of Summit and neighboring communities,” explains Common Council President Dr. Robert Rubino. “It is having a substantial impact on traffic flow in the area and on commerce in our downtown. We have been working closely with the Office of the Governor and with Acting NJ Transportation Chief Joseph Bertoni to initiate the repair project as expeditiously as possible and appreciate the work of all those involved in making it happen.”

The Hobart Avenue Overpass has been shut down since Tuesday, August 26 following a motor vehicle crash on Rt. 24. Damage to girders supporting the overpass was caused by a tractor trailer making contact with the bridge, knocking construction equipment it was carrying onto the roadway.
