* Middlesex Street Closure: Loss of Revenue & Traffic Havoc


Recommended Posts

Middlesex Street in Harrison will be closed starting Tuesday September 1, 2009 from South Frank E. Rodgers Blvd. to Second Street. An announcement on the town's website states "Due to Environmental Remediation and Infrastructure Improvements as of September 1st, 2009 Middlesex Street between Frank E. Rodgers Blvd South and South Second Street and South Third Street between Middlesex Street and Burlington Street will be closed and no parking permitted." There is no indication on how long Middlesex Street will be closed. Questions are directed to Town Engineer Rocco Russomano.

The closure of Middlesex Street will eliminate a significant amount of parking meter revenue. What Environmental Remediation is being conducted? Didn't the redevelopers already conduct the Environmental Remediation? How are commuters going to access parking lots? What plans are in place to deal with the closure of a major east-west traffic artery for commuters and Path train riders. Even when commuters park how do they get to the Path station if Middlesex Street is closed? Are the redevelopers picking up the tab for the lost parking meter revenue?
