Traffic Jam in South Hoboken

10/5/2009:

6:07pm Update: HPD reopened the road allowing traffic to again flow through. It has not yet been paved, only stripped of its top layer. We could have a repeat of the situation tomorrow.

Paving Pandemonium

What’s going on with the big jam in Southwest Hoboken currently?

Well, the powers that be decided to schedule street-paving during the evening rush-hour on Jackson Street – and the entire south-end of town is clogged to the gills.

jam & warning were reported yesterday on 411. Check the site for updates and you won’t have this problem.

I have said it before and it bears repeating…without 411.com, what the hell would we know about this damn city??? I hope– and doubt– Perry gets paid for his work on behalf of the city. And it is almost a shame that you know the city relies on him to do their work. Almost a shame because we get to bash them without retribution. I just wish the city didn’t get away with so much.

Not only to they inconvenience you, they also hide police officers on corners catching drivers who are cutting by the firehouse and the gas station on Observer Highway. Nice job mayor Zimmer now you can justify you double dipping the taxpayers.

Good job police! The biggest problem in this city from administration & council on down is a lack of execution. They should be ticketing as much as possible. Nothing says we are totally committed to raising funds to help combat this budget crisis like a push on ticketing for minor offenses. It’s a small piece of the puzzle but why not make jackasses who don’t live here (or who do) contribute for doing something stupid and illegal.
Getting stuck in this jam today is very foolish. The jam & warning were reported yesterday on 411. Check the site for updates and you won’t have this problem.

It is those “minor offenses” that help make driving and walking around Hoboken more dangerous. Maybe if they went after “minor offenses” more often, folks could see pedestrians better at crosswalks and buses/trucks wouldn’t get stuck behind double parked cars on Willow. If it raises revenue, then great. If it gets people to change behavior, even better.

Yeah, nice job of making cops write tickets. Get more of them out there doing that all over town.

I say Zimmer conducts a poll to find out what streets all the complainers live on, and those streets can remain unpaved in perpetuity. I personaly am happy they are paving. A couple days of traffic headaches sure beats the daily beating my car takes when driving through town on a daily basis.

Sure, if you want to pay twice as much to get the same amount of work during times that are convenient for “you” in the middle of a budget crisis that is smack dab in the middle of a recession. Deal with it just like commuters all over the country deal w/ road work on a daily basis. If you want it done quickly for a reasonable price, you are going to be inconvenienced.
