Northwest Resiliency Park
Construction continues on the 5-acre Northwest Resiliency Park, which will be New Jersey’s largest resiliency park. The park will have above and below ground infrastructure to withhold up to 2 million gallons of rainwater to help mitigate local flooding. The contractor will undertake the following activities this week, subject to weather conditions and snow cover on the project site:
The City uses a combination of low interest and interest-free loans, principal forgiveness for the resiliency features, and grant money to save over $19 million over the life of the project. The Northwest Resiliency Park also utilizes the Open Space Trust Fund to pay for the construction costs of the Northwest Park, and is not utilizing any funding from the 2020 municipal budget.

North Hudson Sewerage Authority projects to mitigate flooding events in Northwest Hoboken, reduce Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs)
To reduce Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) into the Hudson River and mitigate flooding events in Northwest Hoboken, the North Hudson Sewerage Authority (NHSA), in partnership with the City of Hoboken, is constructing a pumping station and a two-story electrical and mechanical building on the Northwest Resiliency Park (NWRP) site. This, along with associated sewer infrastructure in and around the site, is designed to reduce CSO events in the H6/H7 sewershed in Northwest Hoboken. The project also includes the installation of two advanced hydrodynamic separators, an inlet gravity sewer connection and a portion of a stormwater discharge force main connection to the limits of the resiliency park site.
In addition, NHSA will also build a stormwater collection gravity trunk sewer pipeline and appurtenances along 13th Street from Adams Street to Madison Street, and a stormwater force main sewer pipeline and appurtenances along a portion of 13th street from Jefferson Street to Adams Street. Outside of the Northwest Resiliency Park site, the work will include excavation and demolition of existing pipe and structures; and installation of piles and new sewer pipe and precast structures in the roadway of 13th Street between Adams Street and Madison Street.
The following construction activities and traffic management are anticipated this week. Some of the work will be performed between 8:00am and 6:00pm. Please note that the Contractor has coordinated, and will continue to coordinate with the Parking Authority and Hoboken Police for any road closures or traffic management that needs to occur, including between the hours of 4:30pm and 6:00pm.
