ADVISORY: A temporary traffic pattern will be in place for 8 months on the northbound Garden State Parkway in Sayreville as a new phase of bridge construction begins

Jan 25 2018 + SHARE

Drivers who travel the northbound Garden State Parkway through Sayreville will find a new traffic pattern in effect starting this weekend as the work to replace the bridges over Chevalier Avenue moves to a new phase.

The work zone will split the seven northbound lanes, with four lanes being directed to the left and three lanes to the right. For most drivers, the realignment will have minimal impact on their travels because the number of lanes will remain the same.

However, northbound drivers who wish to use exits 125 or 127 will need to stay in the lanes to the right of the work zone.  Accessing those lanes will be easier for drivers who use the local roadway than it will be for drivers who use the express.

The work zone will be set up and the lane shift put in place overnight between 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 26th, and 7 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 27th. The work to be done overnight includes moving construction barrier, changing signs, and painting new stripes on the roadway.  There could be delays associated with lane closures and slowdowns during the overnight hours.

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.

The bridges that carry the Parkway over Chevalier Avenue are being replaced in connection with the Interchange 125 improvement project.  Construction started in 2016 and is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
