Mahwah NJ, concerns in the township of Mahwah have escalated following Monday’s flooding on South Railroad Avenue, intensifying worries about a yearlong issue related to a damaged NJ Transit culvert. Township Administrator Ben Kezmarsky conveyed on Tuesday that an apartment complex east of the tracks had been grappling with flooding due to the damaged culvert for the past year.

While the flooding east of the tracks is an ongoing problem, the recent flooding on the west side suggests a potential threat to the embankment supporting the railroad tracks. This has raised concerns that the damaged culvert may be causing erosion, creating a tunnel beneath the tracks.

Kezmarsky stated, “Yesterday our township engineer reached out to his New Jersey Transit contact regarding the erosion of that embankment.” He added that South Railroad Avenue had flooded for the first time in recent memory, indicating the possibility that water had found an alternative path beneath the tracks.

In response to the concerns, NJ Transit officials assured that their team would inspect the damage. The culvert and its maintenance fall under the responsibility of NJ Transit. Kezmarsky emphasized that if the culvert were not compromised, the water would flow as usual.
