Weekend construction will reduce southbound Eastern Spur of Turnpike to two lanes

Jul 26 2019

One southbound lane of the New Jersey Turnpike will be closed this weekend from north of the Vince Lombardi Service Area to Interchange 17E as a contractor makes repairs to the bridge over Bellman’s Creek at milepost 115.3. 

Southbound travelers should expect delays back to I-80 during the day Saturday and Sunday.

The lane will be reopened by 5 a.m. Monday.

For real-time traffic conditions in the area, drivers should call 511 from a hands-free mobile device or download the SafeTripNJ app. Live traffic camera views of the roadway are available under the Travel Tools tab on this website.
