The Upper Montclair Train Station Bellevue-Erie Commuter Parking Lot will be milled beginning on or about Tuesday, June 25, weather permitting. During this construction period the lot will be closed throughout the duration of this project.

Parking will be allowed on the adjacent cross streets during this parking lot construction period. Make all necessary arrangements to park your vehicle accordingly.

The parking lot will be open to traffic once milling operations and all cleanup has been completed. Expect delays due to the contractor’s activity if driving through the work area. Once milling has been completed, please use caution while driving or walking in these areas as the manholes and storm water catch basins will be raised. Paving will then be completed within 5 to 7 days.

The parking lot will remain closed to traffic for 4–6 hours after paving while the asphalt cools. No vehicles will be permitted in the parking lot until the barricades are removed from the entrances and exits.

If there is a problem or if you have any concerns, and there isn’t an officer at the site during the milling/paving,  immediately call the Montclair Parking Utility at 973-509-4997.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you value from Montclair Local, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on the community's support — we exist because the old model of selling ads alone just can't fund journalism at the level we endeavor to provide. That's why you've seen other local newsrooms cut back staff or shut down entirely. Montclair Local was created because we believe that's unacceptable; the community's at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held to account, when diverse lived experiences are shared — when the community is well-informed.

Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond.
