Hollister Road is pedestrian
un-friendly. Note the poor striping, signage and signaling for pedestrian to cross
Route 46 to reach bus stops.
This intersection has a history. In 2002, the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department reported
about a half dozen serious incidents (requiring HHFD call). In May 2003, an oil
truck overturned shutting down Route 46 for hours to clean up.
Area leaders consider the pedestrian crossings hazardous, and the Industrial Avenue
traffic entering Route 46 confusing. According to officials, the DOT is not
considering any upgrades in the immediate future. Bergen County would permit re-striping
and minor road modification. A traffic study is proposed.

enters Route 46 west. The rise in the distance is the Green Street exit and the
overpass for the railroad. Note that there is a Route 46 West bus stop about 1/3 in
from the right.
