The city of Hoboken will lay out the Complete Streets redesign of Washington Street at a public workshop Monday night
It's going to be a busy Monday in Hoboken.

Beginning in the morning, the 14th Street Viaduct,  deemed structurally deficient, antiquated and in need of rehabilitation by the county in 2010, will be closed to two-way traffic from 9 a.m. through 7 a.m Tuesday while contractor JH Reid constructs the project's northern bridge deck.

The sidewalk will remain open for pedestrians during the construction and a posted detour will direct drivers to alternate routes.

In the afternoon Monday, the city invites residents to attend a swearing-in ceremony for eight Class II Special Police Officers. The ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. in the Court Room at Hoboken City Hall, 94 Washington Street.

Then in the evening, the city will host a community workshop at 8 at the Multi-Service Center, 124 Grand St., to gather public input on a proposed redesign of Washington Street.

The redesign comes on the heels of the city's 2010 adoption of a Complete Streets policy, which requires that roadways offer safe and convenient access for all pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.

Also this week, HOPES CAP will continue its series of career-oriented community workshops at the RUE Computer Lab, 301 Garden St. 

This week's workshops will be held Monday (Setting Goals & Job Search Strategies),Tuesday (Navigating the Internet) and Wednesday (Customer Service) from 10 a.m. to noon.

On Wednesday, Hoboken City Council will hold its regular monthly meeting at 7 p.m. The meeting agenda and resolutions up for adoption are available on the city's website.
