JCMUA Announces Upcoming Water Main Replacement: Potential Traffic in Jersey City and Hoboken

Jersey City, NJ — The Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA) has announced that a water main replacement project is set to begin on or about October 10th and will continue through February 2024. The project, located at 18th Street and Marin Blvd, is expected to cause significant traffic delays in both Jersey City and Hoboken.

The JCMUA advises residents and commuters to plan for delays and, if possible, to avoid the area during peak hours. Detours and traffic management plans are in the works, but specifics have yet to be released.

Local businesses are also bracing for the impact, as the delays could affect customer flow and deliveries. The JCMUA has stated that they will work closely with local authorities to minimize disruptions.

The water main replacement is part of a larger infrastructure improvement plan aimed at enhancing the reliability and safety of the water supply in Jersey City and surrounding areas.

For real-time updates on the project and its impact on traffic, residents are encouraged to visit the JCMUA website or follow them on social media.
