The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is committed to developing transportation improvement that best balance transportation needs, the environment, community concerns and costs.

You are encouraged to actively participate by providing comments using the ‘Questions and Comments’ section.

Project Background

The Route 9W Palisades Ave to NY State Line Project is a NJDOT Concept Development project with the purpose to improve safety and mobility for bicyclists and pedestrians on Route 9W between MP 2.19 and MP 11.17.

The Proposed Project

The Preliminary Preferred Alternative (PPA) was selected because it best addresses the established purpose and need developed for the project area and has been viewed favorably by project stakeholders (NJDOT and the Boroughs of Englewood Cliffs, Tenafly and Alpine). The project improvements include:

  • MP 2.19 to MP 4.00 (Palisades Ave. to north of CR 72 East Clinton Ave.): roadway widening to accommodate two buffered bicycle lanes and improvements to the border area, sidewalk replacement and gap segments filled to meet NJDOT / Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compatibility.
  • MP 4.00 to MP 9.71 (North of CR 72 East Clinton Ave. towards the vicinity of Alpine Scout Camp/Palisades Parkway interchange): proposed striping to replace existing shoulders with buffered bicycle lanes.  In select locations, minor roadway widening will be required.
  • MP 9.71 to MP 11.17 (Vicinity of Alpine Scout Camp / Palisades Parkway interchange to NY State border):  proposed widening to accommodate buffered bicycle lanes and improvements to the border areas.  Bicyclists will share the roadway in areas where the roadway cannot be widened, notably the Pedestrian Overpass (MP 9.71) Palisades Parkway’s two overpasses (MP 10.84).
