City Seeks Lighting for Underpasses

Mayor Mark A. Smith announced that the City of Bayonne is seeking to activate lighting for various underpasses throughout the community. Mayor Smith said, “Residents have said that they would feel safer if lighting were available in the underpasses below several rail lines and roadways in Bayonne.” Smith continued, “We are working with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to find and activate sources of electric power for underpass lighting. Our goal is to improve public safety by cooperating with the NJDOT.”

Crews from the Bayonne Public Works Department have been surveying the locations of underpasses around Bayonne. They have also been evaluating what may need to be done to provide or activate lighting at the various underpasses.

Mayor Smith concluded, “Underpasses will be illuminated as soon as possible, pending the outcome of our efforts in conjunction with the NJDOT.”
