(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced overnight and weekend closures of the Exit 67 ramp from I-95 northbound/I-295 southbound to Route1 in both directions for bridge deck replacement work in Lawrence Township.
Beginning tonight at 10 p.m., Monday, May 1 until 5 a.m., Tuesday, May 2, NJDOT’s contractor, South State, Inc., is scheduled to close the Exit 67 ramp from I-95 northbound/I-295 southbound to Route 1 northbound and southbound to continue deck panel installations and concrete work from this past weekend.
In addition, the next scheduled weekend closure is expected this weekend from Friday night, May 5 until Sunday, May 7. Further overnight closures during the week may be required as the project advances.
Overnight and weekend Detours
During the ramp closures, motorists on I-95 northbound/I-295 southbound attempting to use Exit 67 will be detoured to Exit 65A then directed onto I-295 northbound where they will use Exit 67B to access Route 1 northbound or southbound.
Variable message signs and lane closure signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the deck replacement project. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road closures.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weatheror 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 @NJDOT_info.
