Hackensack NJ, Bergen County is moving forward with plans to replace the East Anderson Street/Cedar Lane Bridge over the Hackensack River in the City of Hackensack and Township of Teaneck. The replacement project aims to address the bridge’s structural, geometric, and operational shortcomings, enhance safety, and ensure efficient transportation for all modes of travel.

The East Anderson Street/Cedar Lane Bridge (County Structure No. 23A) serves as a vital transportation link for communities on both sides of the Hackensack River, catering to businesses, residents, and commuters alike. Spanning 302 feet, the bridge connects the City of Hackensack and the Township of Teaneck, accommodating motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists.

Originally constructed in 1971, the bridge consists of six spans with prestressed concrete box beams and is supported by a combination of pinned and roller supports. In 2012, due to structural deficiencies, weight restrictions were imposed, prohibiting vehicles over 15 tons from crossing the span and leading to the closure of the two outer lanes.

A Local Concept Development (LCD) study, funded by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and spearheaded by Bergen County, was completed in Summer 2020. This study facilitated the development of a clear Purpose and Need Statement, focusing on the imperative to enhance safety and maintain a reliable crossing over the Hackensack River. Several feasible conceptual alternatives were explored to meet project objectives.

Following extensive collaboration with the NJTPA, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, local officials, community stakeholders, and permitting agencies, it was determined, upon completion of an alternatives analysis, that the preferred course of action is to replace the bridge with a new structure. Both the City of Hackensack and the Township of Teaneck passed resolutions of support for this approach in November 2019.

  1. Didn’t the midget from Wyckoff hold multiple press conferences at this bridge years ago bragging about reconstruction made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act?

  2. What is a geometric shortcoming?

    1. Something obtuse!

      1. Ahhhh, cute!

  3. Hey, i’m using the contact form because I noticed you didn’t have a chat option.

    I have a software that adds a chat feature for small businesses in the automotive industry.

    You got a few minutes so I can demo it for you?

    It’s making some of the other users a lot of money and it’s mostly automated so don’t add any more to your plate.
