• Traffic from Route 139 westbound will also be detoured to the Tonnele Circle and will follow the same detour as Route 1&9 traffic.
Route 1&9 northbound
• Route 1&9 northbound Local crossover to the Pulaski Skyway will be closed and the traffic will be detoured onto Route 1&9 Truck northbound. The traffic will continue on Route 1&9 Truck north to the Tonnele Circle. The Route 1&9 northbound express lanes will be diverted to Route 1&9 local lanes before reaching the Skyway.
