Regular construction updates and quality of life projects in the City of Hoboken.
The DEP is continuing the construction phase for the Rebuild By Design Hudson River Project – Sewer System Modifications (SSM).
The project team will be engaging in the following activities the week of Nov. 29, 2021 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.:
North Work Area
Schedules may change due to unforeseen weather or subsurface conditions.
The Rebuild By Design - Hudson River Project is a comprehensive urban stormwater 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. This portion of construction addresses the separation of stormwater structures from the combined sewer system outside of the Resist structure.
Construction began in May 2021 on the South Work Area of the Rebuild By Design Hudson River Project – Sewer System Modifications Project. Construction in the North Work Area began in July 2021. This project will consist of a new storm sewer system, with portions of the existing NHSA combined sewer inlets set to be disconnected and manholes to be sealed and lined. Separation of the stormwater system in the exterior areas will prevent tidal surge backflow into the combined system that could cause flooding on the interior side of the line of protection created by the Resist Structure, once constructed. Stormwater collected in the SSM separated area will gravity flow into the Hudson River.
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.

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 the week of Nov. 29, 2021, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., 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 2020 municipal budget.
More information about the Northwest Resiliency Park construction is available at www.hobokennj.gov/nwpark
The Shade Tree Commission’s annual tree planting program will plant 40 new trees in Hoboken this fall. A licensed tree contractor will open and expand tree pits as well as plant trees at various locations around the City during the week of Nov. 29, 2021, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., subject to weather conditions.
Temporary no parking signs will be posted at construction locations and the contractor will secure each site for pedestrian safety during construction.

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.
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 the week of Nov. 29, 2021, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., subject to weather conditions:
Between 11/30/21 and 12/1/21:
After 12/1/21 through 2/25/22 (pending City Council approval):
The project will include milling, paving, accessibility improvements, and Vision Zero safety improvements along 2nd Street between River Street and Clinton Street, 3rd Street between Park Avenue and Bloomfield Street, and 6th Street between Jackson Street and Madison Street. This project is funded by a grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).
The improvements include, but are not limited to:
2nd Street between River Street and Clinton Street
3rd Street between Park Avenue and Bloomfield Street
6th Street between Jackson Street and Madison Street
The following construction activities are anticipated the week of November 29, 2021:

Lyft has installed 27 of 29 Citi Bike docking stations that are active in Hoboken. No Citi Bike docking stations are scheduled for installation this week.
For more information on the citywide installation progress check here.
Lyft has discontinued the Hoboken Terminal Citi Bike seasonal valet service. Pending demand, Lyft will resume the valet service next spring. With the addition of the docking station at Hoboken City Hall earlier this month, there are over 120 docking spaces within a 5-minute walk of Hoboken Terminal. Riders are encouraged to refer to the Citi Bike app to verify dock/bicycle availability in the area.

The City is upgrading water infrastructure on Hudson Street from 4th Street to 10th Street. The project will replace 2,700 linear feet of 6-inch water main with 12-inch water main including new valves, 10 new fire hydrants, and approximately 150 new service lines from the water main to the curb. Hudson Street will be temporarily restored followed by resurfacing and final restoration of curbs and sidewalks by Hudson County this fall.
No work is anticipated the week of Nov. 22, 2021.
The Contractor for this project is Shauger and the Construction Manager is Suez. The City of Hoboken Engineering Division is overseeing project coordination. A full-time inspector from T&M will be on site daily overseeing construction. They are also available to assist with any questions. Please email questions to email@example.com. Thank you for your patience during construction.
The City upgraded water infrastructure at eight eight locations totaling nearly 7,000 linear feet or 15 blocks in 2020. Upgrades included new water mains, service lines to the curb box, curb to curb resurfacing, green/grey infrastructure to mitigate localized flooding, and complete streets improvements.
More information about the water infrastructure upgrades project is available at https://www.hobokennj.gov/resources/drinking-water-infrastructure-upgrades-phase-1
