ADVISORY: Weekend lane closure scheduled on the Hudson County Extension

Apr 12 2018 + SHARE

The eastbound Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension of the New Jersey Turnpike will be reduced to one lane this weekend between Interchanges 14 and 14A. 

The lane closure, which will begin around 9 p.m. Friday, April 13th, and remain in place until 5 a.m. Monday, April 16th, will allow construction crews to perform high-priority bridge deck repairs. The eastbound shoulder lane will not be in use during the closure.

Traffic impacts could be severe, especially between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Drivers are urged to check conditions before they travel through the area.

For real-time traffic conditions in the area, drivers should call 511 from a hands-free mobile device or download the SafeTripNJ smartphone app. Links to live camera views of traffic conditions on the roadway can be found under the Travel Tools tab at the top of this page.
