Welcome to the Central Avenue Bridge Local Concept Development Study website!
The City of Newark, in conjunction with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is performing a Local Concept Development (LCD) Study for the Central Avenue Bridge over the City Subway.
The Central Avenue Bridge (Structure No. 0700-N06) is experiencing a number of simultaneous and pressing safety concerns due to degraded and obsolete infrastructure. The most recent Bridge Re-Evaluation Report identified a number of safety concerns related to the deck, superstructure and substructure of the bridge. In total, the report rated the condition of the Central Avenue Bridge as serious and the overall physical condition of the bridge as poor due to the superstructure.
Community involvement is an important part of the LCD process and we encourage the community and general public to participate and provide input during the study.
