Construction on Route 4 in Bergen Co. to be completed by the end of November

The construction on Route 4 from Paramus to Hackensack and River Edge in Bergen County is set to be completed by November 23. Crews have been working on the road for more than a year.

Transportation Commissioner Jack Lettiere says the state is pushing up the completion by nine months. State officials say it will cost $1 million to finish the project early. Lettiere says that cost pales in comparison to what it is costing local businesses in lost time and commuters in lost fuel because of congestion.

Crews will work seven days a week to complete the rehabilitation work that is supposed to relieve congestion when it is finished. Residents are looking forward to the construction ending before the holiday shopping season.

The Department of Transportation says paving work will be done on the eastbound lanes during the next two weekends. A lane or two will be shut down from 11 p.m. Saturday to early Monday morning.
