Among the streets closed in neighboring Maywood:

  • Essex Street at the Hackensack border;
  • E. Spring Valley Avenue at the Paramus border;
  • Hergessell Avenue from Central to Brook avenues.

In Bogota, River Road and Elm Avenue was closed.

In Fort Lee, Route 1 North by North Avenue was shut down.
