NJDOT announces I-80 traffic shifts
in Parsippany-Troy Hills

Reconstruction of I-80 bridge decks over I-287 northbound and Smith Road continues

(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced upcoming traffic pattern shifts on Interstate 80 in both directions over I-287 northbound and Smith Road in Parsippany-Troy Hills, Morris County.

NJDOT’s contractor, Sparwick Contracting, is scheduled to set up the new construction zones in the center lane of I-80 in both directions this weekend. Overnight lane closures will be necessary in each direction of the highway Friday night, September 9 and Saturday night, September 10, to implement the new traffic patterns, which will be in place by noon on Sunday, September 11.

Once the new construction zones are in place, three travel lanes will be maintained in each direction of the highway during daytime hours, split around either side of the new work zone.

Construction operations will also require periodic overnight closures of the I-80 eastbound ramp to I-287 northbound.

  • During the ramp closures, I-80 eastbound motorists bound for I-287 northbound will use the ramp to I-287 southbound to the CR 511/Parsippany Road interchange to make a U-turn back onto I-287 northbound.

NJDOT is replacing the four existing, structurally deficient I-80 bridge decks over I-287 northbound and Smith Road. Construction began on the $6.4 million project in January 2011 and is expected to be completed in summer 2012.

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 for construction updates and real-time travel information.
