I-80 resurfacing project requires lane closures
in Morris County
Alternating lane closures necessary
(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced a resurfacing project on I-80 that will require lane closures in both directions in Morris County.
Beginning Tuesday, April 12 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and continuing for the next few weeks, NJDOT’s contractor, Intercounty Paving Associates, LLC. is scheduled to temporarily close one lane of I-80 in each direction for drainage and concrete curb work in Netcong, Ledgewood, Roxbury and Mount Arlington.
Overnight milling and paving will begin from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. weeknights once drainage and curb work is completed. The project will repave I-80 westbound from Route 46 / Ledgewood Avenue to the Route 206 interchange and I-80 eastbound from Route 46 / Ledgewood Avenue to Howard Boulevard / CR615. Additional lane closures during off-peak hours may be necessary.
The $4.2 million state-funded I-80 resurfacing project is expected to be completed by fall 2016. NJDOT has designed the milling and paving project to advance with temporary lane closures, reopening after each shift. Any required detours will be coordinated with the local authorities.
Variable message signs and detour signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the resurfacing project. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road or ramp 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.
