EZ Ride Provides Shuttle Service to Accommodate Pedestrians During Bloomfield Avenue Bridge Construction

An $11.7 million, state-funded Bloomfield Avenue Bridge rehabilitation project will replace the bridge superstructure, which is in “poor condition.” The bridge is located on Bloomfield Avenue/CR506 over NJ TRANSIT’s Montclair Rail Line near Maple Avenue in Montclair.

The project will be advanced in stages to minimize the impact on motorists. EZ Ride partnered with IEW Construction Group to provide shuttle service for pedestrians during sidewalk closures. The service is free, and it’s provided seven days a week: Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The shuttle operates continuously, picking up at Bloomfield Ave and Highland Ave, Bloomfield Ave and Pine Street, and Bay Street Train Station.  Additionally, if needed, riders can flag the shuttle along Woodland Ave.

The shuttle service began on June 29 and is expected to continue operating until December 2019.  The overall construction on the bridge is expected to be completed by summer 2020.
