Regular construction updates and quality of life projects in the City of Hoboken.
In efforts to improve water flow redundancy, Jersey City MUA will begin replacing water mains along Marin Boulevard between 18th Street to Observer Highway. The project will consist of the installation of a new 12” water main to service properties in Jersey City and a new 24” water main that will create an additional interconnection for the City of Hoboken.
There is no planned work that will impact Hoboken traffic the week of February 26, 2024.
Underground Utilities Corp. will be installing new high level storm sewers and a force main within the northeast portion of the City of Hoboken.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) is continuing the construction phase for the Rebuild By Design Hudson River Project – Resist Alignment Coastal Defense Contract. The following is an anticipated work schedule for the upcoming week. Schedules may change due to unforeseen weather or subsurface conditions.
Preliminary field work will continue in the Resist – North and South Work Area the week of February 26, 2024.
The Rebuild By Design - Hudson River Project is a comprehensive urban storm water management program that takes a multi-faceted approach intended to address flooding from both major storm surge and high tide as well as from heavy rainfall events. These events often occur individually, but can also occur together, increasing their impacts. The program includes four components: Resist, Delay, Store and Discharge.
The NJDEP is implementing the Resist component of the project concept, while the City of Hoboken has and continues to lead efforts implementing the Delay, Store and Discharge components. This portion of construction is Phase II of the Resist component. Phase I included implementation of Sewer System Modifications (SSM) and was completed in July 2022. Phase II will include the construction of the Resist Alignment, a floodwall and levee system aimed to protect the Project Area from coastal flooding threats associated with storm surge. Construction for Phase II is beginning with the current test pitting work being described above.
This United States Department of Housing and Urban Development is funding the project, allocating $230 million to the overall Rebuild by Design Hudson River Project. Additional funding has been allocated to this project through the FEMA Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities grant program and through an American Rescue Plan Covid State Fiscal Recovery Funding allocation.

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 during the week of February 26, 2024, subject to weather conditions:
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 2023 municipal budget.
More information about the Northwest Resiliency Park construction is available at www.hobokennj.gov/nwpark.
The Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA) is conducting maintenance along its Aqueduct that supplies drinking water to the City.
The aqueduct feeds into the Veolia-managed water system serving the residents of Jersey City and Hoboken. Veolia will be taking significant steps to mitigate the impacts of these necessary infrastructure upgrades. These impacts include the possibility of minor water discoloration due to stirring up of any sediment within the system.
Veolia will be working in conjunction with JCMUA to carefully monitor the water system throughout these repairs, flushing water mains when necessary, in an effort to minimize discoloration and stabilize water pressure. Should customers encounter discolored water in their home or business, simply flush cold water taps until the water runs clear and resume normal use.
A water shutdown is scheduled on River Street from 2nd Street to 3rd Street on Monday, February 26, 2024 from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. for valve replacement work.
