Port Murray Road to be closed and detoured for bridge work in Mansfield, Warren County
Bridge approach and drainage work requires a full closure
(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced Port Murray Road will be closed for bridge work in Mansfield, Warren County.
Starting at 7 a.m. Monday, March 28, until late spring 2016, NJDOT’s contractor, Berto Construction, is scheduled to close Port Murray Road from Hoffman Road to Brickyard Road to replace a concrete wingwall on the approach to the bridge that spans active rail lines. Drainage improvements are also included in the project.
NJDOT has been in contact with county and local officials, as well as the rail operators to coordinate the work. The Department designed the project to make the repairs as quickly as possible to minimize the impact on traffic during the closure. The project is expected to be completed by late spring 2016.
The following detours will be in place:
• Motorists will be directed to CR629/Rockport Road to CR652/Thomas Road to Route 57 westbound to Port Murray Road
• Motorists will be directed to Route 57 eastbound to CR652/Watters Road to Rockport Road to CR629/Main Street
NJDOT will be using Variable Message Signs to provide advance notification to motorists of traffic pattern changes associated with the work. The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.
