ADVISORY: One lane of the eastbound Hudson County Extension will be closed this weekend while sections of a new bridge deck are poured

Oct 18 2018 + SHARE

One lane of the eastbound Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension of the New Jersey Turnpike will be closed this weekend from west of Interchange 14B to Christopher Columbus Drive. Drivers attempting to exit at the Christopher Columbus Drive off-ramp will be detoured to Marin Boulevard.  The ramp to Liberty Science Center will remain open.

The closures will enable a Turnpike Authority contractor to pour sections of a new bridge deck and perform other miscellaneous repairs under a contract for rehabilitating three bridges on the Extension. Similar high-intensity construction cycles are scheduled for three weekends in November.

This weekend’s closure will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 19th, and continue until 5 a.m. on Monday, October 22nd.

Traffic impacts could be severe, especially during peak travel times.

Drivers are urged to check conditions before they travel through the area.

For real-time traffic conditions, call 511 from a landline or a hands-free mobile device. Traffic alerts are posted on the home page of this website. Live traffic camera views can be found under the Travel Tools tab.
