Hackensack Discussion / Re: Union and Passaic Streets closed today
« Last post by BLeafe on August 05, 2017, 01:10:11 PM »
Thanks again, Mike.


So it turns out that the road patch on Union north of Passaic WAS temporary. They were back early yesterday, but faced an immediate rain delay.

Union St was closed from Passaic to Anderson. Ward St from State to Union was also closed (second pic). The third pic shows the view straight down on Union St in front of my building, where they're storing all their goodies. Union St and Conklin Place have underground utility markings on them and I think I saw a couple on Ward St, so it looks like the water pipe will reach Anderson and maybe go up the side streets.

Besides the pipes in front of my building, they're also in front of the Second Reformed Church and on Ward St close to Union.

Union St was bumpily re-patched and open by 3pm. This will probably be going on for a while and then yet another big repaving project will be needed.

taking sample bores of the soil.

Thanks for the info, Mike.


1 - Last weekend, workers dragged all this cardboard out of the CBHC building. It sat there for a week.

2 - Yesterday, someone in a James E. Hanson truck came by and took it away.

3 - This is a wider shot showing the three main buildings: the CBHC, Don Alfonso restaurant and the James E. Hanson realty company that's not only carting away all the CBHC cardboard, but is also.............

4 - ............STILL OPEN! I saw at least a half-dozen people drop by to pay rent or whatever, while...............

5 - ............right outside their window, soil samples were being drilled out in their parking lot.

6 - A little later, a flatbed arrived to pick up the apparatus

Since it is right up the block from the college, they could name it:

The only name I don't want to see on it is "RiverView".   >:(

THE DON ALFONSO

That would be a pretty fancy name for the building.

Hackensack Discussion / Union and Passaic Streets closed today
« Last post by BLeafe on August 03, 2017, 09:33:06 PM »
Union St was closed from Anderson St to some point south of Passaic St. for almost the entire day today, as was Passaic St from (I'm guessing) Park St to State St.

The streets were reopened sometime between 6 and 7pm. It was a bumpy ride for cars driving over the road scar, so I don't know if it was a temporary fix or if the crews will be back tomorrow.

I wasn't sure what the problem was until I saw a Suez truck (water). If anyone knows any details, feel free to post them here.

BTW - check out the bottom right guy's steering mechanism in the first photo.

So today was the first sign of activity on the site of the big State-Ward-Main project that I am not looking forward to. The site includes the big Comprehensive Behavior Health Care (CBHC) building, the Don Alfonso Restaurant, the Hanson Real Estate office and some Main St businesses

This morning, I heard some mini-piledriver sounds and saw the below image by the CBHC. You can see someone carrying a big borer bit. I later saw similar activity on the Ward St side near Main St. I have no idea what they were doing...........maybe planting charges for the explosive demolition of the building? What a shot that would be!

This is the separate thread where I'll post whatever I see every step of the way. Obviously, I won't be be able to see as much of whatever happens on the Main St side, but I have a very good view of the State St side from my living room and will document my vanishing river view as the new building goes up.
