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 Sept. 20, 2021:
North Work Area
South 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 Sept. 27, 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 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.
The following activities are anticipated the week of Sept. 27, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
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 Sept. 27, 2021, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., subject to weather conditions:
Upcoming Large Volume Concrete Pours
The project will include milling, paving, accessibility improvements, and Vision Zero safety improvements along 4th Street between Garden Street and Grand Street, 8th Street between Madison Street and Monroe Street, 15th Street between Park Avenue and Washington Street, and Marshall Street between 1st Street/Paterson Avenue and 2nd Street. This project is funded by a grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).
The improvements include:
4th Street between Garden Street and Grand Street
8th Street between Madison Street and Monroe Street
15th Street between Park Avenue and Washington Street
Marshall Street between 1st Street/Paterson Avenue and 2nd Street
No construction activities are anticipated during the week of Sept. 27, 2021.
SUEZ will be testing/flushing fire hydrants between Willow Avenue and Monroe Street from 8th Street to 16th Street.
Testing/Flushing began Friday, Aug. 27 and will continue through Friday, Oct. 1. on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
