Sleepless in Hoboken

River Street Paving keeps Hoboken residents wide awake

We all know the roads in Hoboken are likely the worst in New Jersey. They all need re-paving (and proper maintenance).

However, Hoboken411 reader Casey thinks that the skull-rattling jackhammering shouldn’t be happening in the wee hours of the night. When you see the video he submitted below – you’d probably ask the same question: “Why can’t this be done during the day when people are awake?”

This was just another idiotic move made by the morons the mayor has brought into her administration. With proper signage and advance warning the cars could have been detoured along other routes. With proper warning some drivers would have opted to find alternate routes or alternate means of transportation while the work was being done DURING THE DAY.
The mayor should be ashamed of herself for thinking that the residents of the area surrounding River Street should tolerate the night time noise. Just another sign of her arrogance.

At this time of the paving season the time the work is scheduled around the availability of equipment. Most of the paving equipment and the dump trucks are going 24 hours a day, 6 days a week.

No reason for night construction for a road that can be easily closed during the day in a residential neighborhood.
River from 2nd south to the Path is a brutal road- huge potholes etc. When is Washington St getting done? It’s horrible all the way through town and is our “showcase” strip through town.

How obnoxious sounding! Another brilliant idea from the pea-brains at city hall. 🙄

If it’s that big an emergency, I can see them starting it asap if need be, but if they originally approved overnight work till 4/5am all week, that’s idiotic. If it was one night, and it had to be started right then, that’s one thing. Why the need to only do work overnight all week, as was originally approved? If it’s a pressing matter, have then they should have been working on it during the day today too.

Did you receive any notice of the work to be done in your area, and its potential to cause a ridiculous amount of disturbance on a handful of weeknights?

My best guess is that whoever they hire to do all this dirty work has other jobs to do during the day. Walking around yesterday, it was pretty easy to see that the workers have other construction jobs to tend to during the day.

Absolutely none, no word about any of it. Then around 8:30 last night, we just heard the jackhammering coming from outside. Thought it might be something in that lot that’s just south of the W or something, they looked out of the window and they’re tearing up the street!
