Local Concept Development Study for Clay
Street Bridge Over Passaic River

Welcome to the NJTPA Local Concept Development Study for the Clay Street Bridge over the Passaic River in the Borough of East Newark, Hudson County and the City of Newark, Essex County, New Jersey.  The County of Hudson and the County of Essex are conducting a study of the existing Clay Street Bridge.  The bridge is over 100 years old and has structural and functional limitations that don't meet today's design standards.  The Counties are working with the municipalities in coordination with NJTPA and NJDOT to determine what bridge improvements are possible.

Community involvement is a vital part of the LCD Study and we encourage the community and general public to follow, participate, and provide input on improvements to the bridge as an important transportation link for the local communities and the region.
