Route 46 westbound ramp to
I-80 westbound to reopen in Parsippany this week

Ramp reconstruction project completed

(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the reopening of the Route 46 westbound ramp to I-80 westbound in Parsippany, Morris County.

The demolition and reconstruction of the bridge deck and structural improvements on the ramp are complete and the ramp will reopen on Friday, August 19. NJDOT closed the ramp in March and expected its completion early this fall, but the project ran ahead of schedule and has been completed earlier than expected.

“NJDOT always works to get our projects done on time to avoid impacting the motoring public for longer than absolutely necessary,” said NJDOT Commissioner Richard Hammer. “I’m proud of our project team for getting the work done on this job even sooner than initially planned. I know it will be appreciated.”

The $1.4 million federally-funded Route 46 westbound ramp to I-80 westbound reconstruction project demolished and reconstructed the existing bridge deck and repaired concrete abutments and piers on the ramp. NJDOT coordinated with local officials throughout the design and construction process.
