ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- NJ TRANSIT's grade crossing repair projects planned for Pearl River and Spring Valley this month start on Wednesday, Oct. 4 with the closure of two rail crossings in Pearl River.

Following the completion of that work, three crossings in Spring Valley will be closed for repairs. Traffic delays are anticipated as a result of the associated road closures and detours.

Here's what residents and motorists need to know:

Pearl River

• From Wednesday, 10/4/17 through Monday, 10/9/17, NJ TRANSIT will be closing the rail crossings at Jefferson Avenue and Washington Avenue for a week for repair work.

• Both crossings will be closed 24/7 between Oct. 4 and Oct. 9 and traffic will be detoured onto Central Avenue.

• Sidewalks at the crossings will also be closed.

• The crossings at Jefferson and Washington Avenues will re-open on Tuesday, Oct. 10.

• The Town of Orangetown Police Department will have officers in place to assist with traffic control associated with the road closures and detour.

Spring Valley

• From Wednesday, 10/11/17 through Tuesday, 10/17/17, NJ TRANSIT will be closing the rail crossings at Maple Avenue and Dutch Lane for a week for repair work.

• Both crossings will be closed 24/7 between Oct. 11 and Oct. 17 and traffic will be detoured.

• The crossings at Maple Avenue and Dutch Lane will re-open on Wednesday, Oct. 18.

• From Thursday, 10/19/17 through Wednesday, 10/25/17, NJ TRANSIT will be closing the rail crossing at Main Street (Route 45) for a week for repair work.

• The Main Street (Route 45) crossing will be closed 24/7 between October 19 and October 25 and traffic will be detoured.

• The Spring Valley Transit Center will remain open and accessible during the construction project.

• The Main Street (Route 45) crossing will re-open on Thursday, October 26.

• The Village of Spring Valley is working with NJ TRANSIT to ensure traffic control will be in place for all three of the road closures and detours between Oct. 11 and Oct. 26.

The rail crossing repair work on the Pascack Valley Line has been ongoing since Sept. 17 and is expected to be complete by October 28. At the crossings in Rockland County, repair work will include replacing concrete panels and smoothing the road surface.

Rail service on the line has been suspended during daytime hours during the week and completely suspended on weekends throughout the six-week period allotted for the crossing repair work. Pascack Valley rail commuters have been using the substitute busing being provided or finding other alternatives since that time.
