TRENTON, NJ — New Jersey Department of Transportation officials announced that the Pulaski Skyway is scheduled to be closed in both directions this weekend and next weekend to install deck panels as the rehabilitation of the historic 83-year-old bridge advances.
Beginning at 10 p.m. tonight, through 2 p.m. Saturday, April 9, NJDOT’s contractor, CCA Civil Inc. is scheduled to close the Pulaski Skyway southbound at the off-ramp to I-280/Route 7 and Route 1&9 southbound to install deck panels. The southbound lanes are expected to be closed again next weekend, Friday, April 15 through Sunday, April 17, to continue the deck panel installation.
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. 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 created 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.
There is also 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.
