Transportation Commissioner Jamie Fox today announced that NJDOT is suspending construction activities that impact traffic for the July 4th Holiday weekend.

Lane closures will be permitted for emergency reasons only.”

NJDOT will also be operating Emergency Service Patrols (ESP) on both North and South Jersey to assist motorists with disabled vehicles.

In North Jersey, on I-287, I-80 and I-280 ESP will operate Wednesday evening, July 3, and Sunday, July 7, from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm.
