Bergen County has a tremendous amount of traffic. In the event of a serious incident or accident that requires a complete closure of a State roadway, the Traffic Incident Management Plan is implemented.
This plan was produced in cooperation with the Bergen County Traffic Officer's Association, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the Bergen County Police Chief's Association and the Bergen County Police Dpartment.
Specially trained officers are sent to the scene of the incident to work with NJDOT and local police agencies to divert traffic around the incident in a safe and timely manner.
This is a sample page out of the Bergen County Traffic Diversion Plan
