Attention Boaters: Important Notice About Hackensack River

On approximately 40 non-consecutive days between Oct. 1, 2017,  and June 11, 2018, boaters will not be able to go further south on the Hackensack River than the Hudson Generating Station in Jersey City. This is due to the placement of the new center span on the Wittpenn Bridge  that spans Jersey City to Kearny.

Closure dates will be posted on the USCG website notice page at https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=lnmDistrict&region=1 as they become available. Boaters can register at the site to receive weekly notices. There is a link at the top left hand corner of the page to register with their email notification service.
