Temporary Detours

temporary detours graphic

The detours for the Pulaski Skyway deck replacement (Contracts 3 and 4) will utilize state and county roadways. A minimal number of local streets will be included in the detour routes for the ramp closures on the Pulaski Skyway. Route 139 Hoboken and Conrail Viaduct detours will affect local streets in Jersey City.

Take time to travel smarter.

The following detours will be in place to facilitate the flow of traffic during the closure of the Pulaski Skyway northbound lanes. Traffic engineers and local police will be monitoring key intersections on local Jersey City streets.

  • Starting on or about April 1, 2016, the southbound Pulaski Skyway exit ramp to Raymond Boulevard in Newark will be closed. It is necessary to close this ramp to facilitate the replacement of the deck on the southbound side of the structure. The ramp will be closed for more than two years while it is being rehabilitated following the bridge deck replacement. The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will be signing a detour (pdf 1.2m) along Route 1&9 southbound to Wilson Avenue and Doremus Avenue to accommodate motorists diverted away from this Pulaski Skyway exit ramp.

  • The Broadway entrance ramp to the southbound lanes of the Pulaski Skyway will be closed for the duration of the deck replacement. NJDOT will be signing a detour (pdf 213k) along Route 1&9 T southbound to accomodate motorists diverted away from this Pulaski Skyway entrance.

  • The Kearny southbound exit and northbound entrance ramps will be closed for the duration of the deck replacement. Motorists will be detoured onto Route 1&9 T as indicated on the Kearny southbound exit ramp detour (pdf 216k) and Kearny northbound entrance ramp detour (pdf 280k) diagrams.

  • Due to safety and congestion concerns related to the heavy merge/weave area on Ferry Street/Raymond Boulevard at the entrance to the New Jersey Turnpike (Interchange 15E) and Doremus Avenue, NJDOT will be closing the exit ramp from eastbound Ferry Street (Route 1&9 T) to the New Jersey Turnpike Toll Plaza at Interchange 15E and the exit ramp from eastbound Ferry Street (Route 1&9 T) to Doremus Avenue.

    This detour (pdf 198k) diverts motorists off Ferry Street prior to reaching Route 1&9 T:

    • Motorists will be directed onto Foundry Street, then onto Roanoke Street which intersects with Doremus Avenue. From Doremus Avenue, motorists will be able to easily access the New Jersey Turnpike.

  • Due to operational concerns with the added traffic on
    Route 1&9 T, the Route 1&9 T southbound left-turn movement onto Communipaw Avenue has been eliminated. Motorists wishing to make this move will be detoured (pdf 183k):

    • Motorists will be directed southbound on Route 440 to the Hudson Mall jughandle at Virginia Avenue. Motorists will
      U-turn at this jughandle and travel north to make a right onto Communipaw Avenue.
