I-80 eastbound express lanes to be closed for water main repairs in Lodi
Overnight closures necessary for several nights
(Trenton) -New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced that the two express lanes on I-80 eastbound will be closed overnight for water main repairs under the River Avenue Lodi Bridge in Lodi, Bergen County.
Beginning at 8 p.m., Monday, December 3 until 5 a.m. the next day, and continuing for approximately two nights, the I-80 eastbound express lanes will be closed under the River Avenue Lodi Bridge as the Passaic Valley Water Commission investigates and repairs a misaligned eight-inch water main pipe. One local lane will remain open during the repair work.
As the repair progresses, two local lanes will be closed between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. for approximately three nights and all other lanes will be reopened.
Depending upon the engineering findings, additional closures on I-80 westbound may be required. The public will be notified prior to additional road closures. Road signs and variable message signs are on-site providing motorists advance notification of the road closures.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.
