A major project by the Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority will impact traffic flow in and out of southern Hoboken for two weeks beginning on Monday, February 12th.

The JCMUA will resume a long-term, water main replacement project along Marin Boulevard between 18th Street and Observer Highway.  The construction is expected to last approximately two weeks and will likely impact traffic heading into and out of southern Hoboken, especially during heavy commute times.

Marin Boulevard, which turns into Henderson Street in Hoboken, will be closed between 18th Street in Jersey City and Observer Highway in Hoboken weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. beginning on Monday.  18th Street will also be closed westbound between Park Lane and Grove Street in Jersey City.  The same closures will be implemented from 10 p.m. on Sunday, February 18th, through 12 p.m. on Monday, February 19th.   Officials say construction will resume during regular hours at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 20th.

Drivers are encouraged to use Grove Street or Jersey Avenue or northern routes into and out of Hoboken during work hours, and to leave extra time for travel in and around that area.  Hoboken and Jersey City Police will be on site to assist with detours and other traffic impacts.

JCMUA advises that water customers may experience low water pressure during working hours.
