I-95 north/I-295 south ramp
to be closed beginning this weekend in Lawrence
Eight week closure of ramp to Route 1 south permits construction
(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the start of work to replace the Exit 67 ramp deck from I-95 northbound/I-295 southbound to Route 1 in Lawrence Township.
Beginning at 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Saturday, January 14, NJDOT contractor, South State, Inc., will close the Exit 67 ramp from I-95 northbound/I-295 southbound to Route 1. The ramp to Route 1 northbound will reopen Saturday evening and the ramp to Route 1 southbound will remain closed for approximately eight weeks. The closure allows our contractor to preform stage 1 of this project which involves the demolition and replacement of the ramp deck leading to Route 1 southbound.
Motorists on I-95 northbound/I-295 southbound attempting to use Exit 67 will be detoured to Exit 65A then directed onto I-295 northbound where they will use Exit 67B to access Route 1.
Variable message signs and lane closure signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the deck replacement project. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road closures.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
