Route 4 in Englewood, one of Bergen County's busiest roads, is scheduled to have lane closures in both directions starting Friday at noon.
Different portions will be shut down through the weekend due to the Jones Road Bridge Replacement Project. There will be temporary complete closure as well.
The $20.7 million federally funded project will replace the Jones Road Bridge over Route 4 in Englewood. Officials say the new bridge will be 3 feet higher to improve under-clearance issues on Route 4.
Work is expected to be completed in summer 2025. For more information, click here.
