The City of Hoboken has announced via its website that the North Hudson Sewerage Authority will begin work Feb. 10 to replace three blocks of combined sewer along Jackson Street.

The work will cover from Newark Street to First Street. The work is expected to last approximately eight to 10 weeks, officials said.

The existing wooden box sewer, constructed in the 1870s, has deteriorated and partially collapsed over its nearly 200 years in use, and officials say it has created blockages in the combined sewer system, which adversely affects drainage in the area. The city says the sewer replacement will improve drainage, and that will help to alleviate local flooding. 

Most of the remaining sewer system in Southwest Hoboken was rehabilitated during the last decade, according to the website.

Construction will take place in three phases, with each phase taking approximately 2 to 3 weeks to complete. That will require parking will be prohibited 24/7 on both sides along the corresponding block. Hoboken Police will be on site at all times during construction to provide traffic control. The North Hudson Sewerage Authority will coordinate with the local businesses and residents to allow driveway access. 


Phase 1 – Paterson Plank Road to First Street

• Construction will take place 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
• The street will be closed to through traffic 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.  and will be reopened to traffic after 3:30 pm.
• The contractor will coordinate with residences on the street to provide driveway access in an effort to limit any inconvenience.

Phase 2 – Observer Hwy to Paterson Plank Road 

• Construction will take place 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
• One lane of traffic will remain open at all times.

Phase 3 – Newark St to Observer Hwy 

• Construction will take place 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
