FAIR LAWN, N.J.– The Fair Lawn Avenue bridge will replaced in the fall of 2017l, officials said.
The existing bridge will be replaced with a new three lane, two-way traffic structure in the same location, connecting Fair Lawn Avenue and Route 20/McLean Boulevard in Paterson, Passaic County Spokesperson Keith Furlong said.
The eastbound and westbound traffic lanes will be 15-feet wide. There will also be a 10-foot wide westbound lane for left turns onto Route 20.
The bridge will be widened on the Paterson side to accommodate trucks, Furlong said.
A new six-foot sidewalk will be built on the upstream side of the bridge, he said.
The project's cost is unknown until Passaic County puts out requests for proposals, Furlong added.
