A plan to improve the traffic signals along Broadway in Westwood may have to wait until next year, according to borough engineer Stephen Boswell.
Borough officials are planning a change to intersections along Broadway that will allow traffic to flow while trains pass by. Currently, traffic stops in all directions on Broadway and intersection streets along the train tracks when a train comes through.
The plan will change the intersections of Broadway with Irvington Street, Washington Avenue and Westwood Avenue and First Avenue and Jefferson Avenue.
NJ Transit has requested several minor changes to the signal timing for the project, but the review process has delayed the project several months since local officials approved funding for the plan.
Boswell estimated the project could go out to bid within a month now that the final changes have been made. Once a contract is awarded, some of the work could be done during the winter, he said.
