Sycamore Avenue grade crossing closed for repairs starting July 7

July 21, 2011

NEWARK, NJ — Beginning on or about Thursday, July 7 and continuing for approximately two weeks, NJ TRANSIT will make repairs to the Sycamore Avenue grade crossing at Little Silver Station.  The work, which includes renewal of the track bed and road surface, will result in a smoother ride for motorists traveling over the crossing.


To accommodate this work, Sycamore Avenue will be closed to motor vehicles at Little Silver Station.  Customers requiring access to the parking lot at Ayers Lane and Sycamore Avenue will follow a posted detour around the crossing.


NJ TRANSIT is advising customers of the following:


  • To access the parking lot at Ayers Lane and Sycamore Avenue, travel northbound on Branch Avenue, make a left on White Road, left on Route 35/Broad Street, left on Sycamore Avenue, right on Ayers Lane and a right into the parking lot.
  • Customers may need to board trains from a different platform due to possible track changes/single tracking during off-peak hours on weekdays and weekends.  Please listen closely to boarding announcements at the station. 
  • As an alternate, customers may wish to travel to Long Branch Station, where there is paid daily parking available, or a little farther south to Elberon Station, where there is free parking.
  • Customers should allow extra travel time due to possible motor vehicle traffic delays. 

NJ TRANSIT apologizes for any inconvenience this detour may cause.  Customers may visit or call 973-275-5555 to contact NJ TRANSIT.
