TRENTON, NJ — New Jersey Department of Transportation officials has announced Pulaski Skyway will be closed in both directions this weekend for the installation of deck panels in the northbound lanes and other construction activities as the rehabilitation of the historic 84-year-old bridge advances.
Beginning at 11 p.m. Friday, March 18, through noon Sunday, March 21, NJDOT’s contractor, CCA Civil Inc. is scheduled to close the Skyway southbound at the off-ramp to I-280/Route 7 and Route 1&9 southbound to install pre-cast deck panels on the northbound side.
The full closure includes most on and off ramps, including the southbound on ramp from Tonnele Circle.
The ramp from the Route 139 westbound to I-280/Route 7 and Route 1&9 southbound will remain open.
This full weekend closure of the Skyway is for the installation of pre-cast deck panels and for other related activities. NJDOT has created a video that shows options for alternate routes to help motorists navigate the closures, which can be found on the NJDOT YouTube channel.
NJDOT has a project-specific website — www.pulaskiskyway.com — which contains information about the Skyway and the project, and will be updated with relevant new information as work progresses.
The Department is carefully coordinating the Pulaski Skyway project with other regional transportation infrastructure projects to minimize traffic congestion.
NJDOT has a project hotline telephone number, 973-776-7400, and email, Pulaski.Skyway@dot.nj.gov. Anyone who has questions, concerns, or suggestions is encouraged to contact the Project Outreach Team as work progresses.
