New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials haveannounced the Broadway ramp from the Pulaski Skyway northbound to Route 1&9 Truck in Jersey City will be closed and detoured for reconstruction as the rehabilitation of the historic 89-year-old bridge advances.
Beginning at 9 p.m. Saturday, November 13, NJDOT’s contractor, Skanska Koch, is scheduled to close the Broadway exit ramp from the Pulaski Skyway northbound to Route 1&9 Truck in Jersey City. This closure will allow the contractor to replace the ramp superstructure and deck. The ramp is expected to remain closed for five years. The Broadway ramp onto the Pulaski Skyway southbound from Jersey City remains closed.
In addition to the ramp closure, single-lane closures will be required in both directions on the Skyway near the ramp between 9 p.m. Saturday, November 13 and 7 a.m. Sunday, November 14 for roadway restriping and construction barrier installation. At least one lane will be maintained in both directions at all times overnight.
The work is part of Contract 8B of the Pulaski Skyway rehabilitation project, which is being advanced through multiple construction contracts. The Department is carefully coordinating the Pulaski Skyway project with other regional transportation infrastructure projects to minimize traffic congestion. The following detour will be in place:
Pulaski Skyway north exit to Broadway Avenue detour
- Motorists on the Pulaski Skyway northbound wishing to take the Broadway ramp to Jersey City will be directed to continue north on the Skyway
- Take the next exit ramp for Tonnelle Circle
- Once in the Circle, motorists can continue onto Route 1&9 northbound
- Motorists wishing to travel onto Route 1&9 southbound or Route 1&9 Truck southbound should proceed through the Circle to Route 1&9 northbound
- Make a U-turn at County Road and proceed onto Route 1&9 southbound.
The Department has a project hotline telephone number, 973-776-7400, and email, Pulaski.Skyway@dot.nj.gov. Anyone who has questions, concerns, or suggestions is encouraged to contact the Project Outreach Team as work progresses.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NewJerseyDOT or on the NJDOT Facebook page.
