I-80 eastbound express ramp
to I-95 southbound to close tonight


Deck replacement work to take several months

(Trenton) New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the start of a bridge deck replacement project that will require the closure of the I-80 eastbound express ramp to I-95 southbound in Teaneck and Ridgefield Park, Bergen County.

At 8 p.m. tonight, Friday, August 15, NJDOT’s contractor, Berto Construction, Inc., is scheduled to close the ramp from I-80 eastbound express to I-95 southbound.

  • Motorists on I-80 eastbound who wish to take I-95 southbound should stay in the local lanes.
  • A signed detour will direct motorists on the I-80 eastbound express lanes to I-95 northbound to Exit 73 to Park Avenue to Bruce Reynolds Boulevard to Lemoine Avenue where they will cross over I-95 to Bridge Plaza North to I-95 southbound.

The $1.8 million federally-funded project will replace the bridge deck that is in poor condition. The project is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Variable message signs will notify motorists of the work and traffic pattern changes. 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 real-time travel information.
