Plan Accordingly

Projects in the Garden State will set motorists back

Construction projects are ramping up in New Jersey. Route 202 is expected to have overnight lane closures in both directions over the next several months from Chubb Way to Interstate 287 for a pavement preservation project.

A single lane on Route 202 northbound and southbound are scheduled to be closed through the summer according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT). The lane closures are necessary for milling and paving.

Construction is expected to begin in the right lane and move to the left lane as work advances. At least one lane and access to all ramps will be maintained. Later in the project when the ramps will be repaved, motorists should follow the signed detours. Motorists are advised to slow down, use caution, and expect delays while driving through the work zone, NJDOT said.

This work is part of the $8.5 million federally funded project that will improve pavement conditions on approximately 10 miles of Route 202. This project will include milling and paving the ramps within the project limits, reconstructing curbs and sidewalks to comply with ADA standards, and upgrading traffic signals and lightening.

The project is expected to be completed in fall 2024.

That’s not the only project taking place in the Garden State. Daytime lane closures will be seen on the George Washington and Bayonne bridges, for scheduled road work.

The George Washington Bridge will close two eastbound lanes on the upper level on May 2 and the Bayonne Bridge will close the right lane, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through May 3.
