Welcome to the Kingsland Avenue Bridge Replacement Project
This bridge connects the Township of Lyndhurst, Bergen County and the Township of Nutley, Essex County and is over 100 years old with structural and functional limitations that do not meet today’s design standards.
The County of Bergen and the County of Essex completed a Local Concept Development (LCD) Study in 2020, using federal funding, through the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Study result is to replace the existing Kingsland Avenue (Avondale and De Jessa Memorial) Bridge over the Passaic River with a new bridge. The project is advancing to the Local Preliminary Engineering (LPE) phase with federal funding.
Community involvement was an essential part of the LCD Study and will continue through this LPE phase and the future Final Design and Construction phases. The Project Team continues to encourage the community and general public to follow, participate, and provide input on the bridge replacement. This website provides information about the project and the opportunity to participate and comment.
