This week preliminary work has begun on repaving Leonia Ave between Preston St. and Gray St. This is to address the flooding issues along Leonia Ave. Other streets that will be worked on will be W. Grove St., Larch & Linden Aves, then W. Ft. Lee Rd and Palisade Ave. Funding for these project will come from a Municipal bond passed by Bogota Borough Council earlier this year. Funds will also come from the New Jersey Dept. of Transportation which will cover a majority of the cost of the Leonia Ave. part of the project.
The Borough also hopes to address the flooding issues along Queen Anne Rd and Maplewood Ave. There are also long term plans to ease the flooding at Elm Ave and River Road. Another flooding are that is under study is the section of W. Ft. Lee Rd that borders the Peninsula project being developed by the River Development LLC who has contracted to buy those properties for an Apartment complex on that site.
Bergen County is also looking to rehabilitate the Midtown Bridge over the Hackensack River connecting Bogota to Hackensack.
None of these projects will deal with the ongoing work by PSE&G along River Rd from W. Ft. Lee Rd to the Ridgefield Park border. PSE&G plans to repave River Rd when their Northeast Grid project is complete some late 2015 or 2016.
