NJDOT closes ramp from Route 3 westbound
to Ridge Road in Rutherford
(Trenton) - The Route 3 westbound exit ramp to Barrows Avenue and Ridge Road is scheduled to be closed to traffic for approximately four months, starting next week in Rutherford Borough.
Beginning on Monday morning, March 12, Route 3 westbound motorists will be directed to take the exit for Route 17 southbound to Rutherford Avenue west to Ridge Road.
Closing this ramp will help facilitate further construction activities, including new retaining walls and sound barriers, for the ongoing $149 million, federally-funded Route 3 Passaic River bridge replacement project.
NJDOT’s contractor, J.P. Creamer-Sanzari JV, is replacing the structurally deficient moveable bridge with a new fixed span over the Passaic River, connecting Clifton City in Passaic County with Rutherford and Lyndhurst in Bergen County. NJDOT has staged the project in a manner that will enable motorists to cross the Passaic River throughout construction.
Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website for construction updates and real-time travel information.
