ADVISORY: Lane closures scheduled for tonight on southbound GSP in Sayreville

Dec 18 2017 + SHARE

There will be overnight lane closures and slowdowns on the southbound Garden State Parkway in Sayreville tonight as construction crews remove a lane shift that has been in place on the southbound roadway for the past year.

The three right lanes will be closed beginning at about 7 p.m. Those lanes will reopen and the four left lanes will close at about 11 p.m.  State Police will slow southbound traffic approaching the area about 30 minutes before the closure of the four left lanes. All lanes will be open to traffic before 6 a.m. tomorrow.

The work to be done tonight to remove the southbound lane shift entails restriping the roadway, removing and relocating construction barrier, and changing overhead sign panels. It is related to the Interchange 125 improvement project, which involves the replacement of bridges on the mainline of the Parkway, construction of a new northbound Parkway entrance and a new southbound Parkway exit, and the reconfiguration of the existing southbound Parkway entrance. Construction started in 2016 and is scheduled to be completed in 2019. A lane shift will be installed on the northbound side next month.

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.
