CITY OF HACKENSACK
BERGEN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY

The work to be performed under this contract includes the following: The City of Hackensack is undertaking the redevelopment of a street network in their downtown area and changing Main Street and State Street from two, one-way streets back to two way operations between Passaic Street and Essex Street. This contract requires the replacement of 11 traffic signal installations and associated intersection improvements while maintaining traffic to the downtown businesses and offices. In addition, 6 traffic signal installations will be completely eliminated from the various intersections along State Street and Main Street when they become two way streets.

It is imperative that the successful contractor understands they will be coordinating their work with the resident engineer and city police department to maintain access at all possible times. Construction will be limited to not more than 3 adjacent intersections at any one time, and be subject to the approval of the Resident Engineer. Construction is to commence at the intersection of State Street and Passaic Street and progress southerly to the State Street and Essex Street intersection.
