Alternate Routes

alternate routes graphic

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is encouraging motorists to become familiar with the alternate routes now, well in advance of the northbound lane closures. Pulaski Skyway users can mitigate delays by taking alternate routes.

Travel smarter...plan an alternate route.

NJDOT plans to increase capacity at key locations and roadways such as the New Jersey Turnpike and
Route 1&9 T to receive diverted Pulaski Skyway traffic.

New Jersey Turnpike

  • The New Jersey Turnpike Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension
    (I-78) eastbound shoulder will be converted into a third travel lane during morning and evening peak travel periods. The additional travel lane on the Turnpike Extension will enable that route to accommodate about 4,500 additional vehicles per morning peak period. The third lane also will be available to motorists during evening commute hours.

    The New Jersey Turnpike Eastern Spur is expected to handle an additional 1,500 vehicles in the morning peak period.

    Any motorist who plans to use the New Jersey Turnpike during the northbound lane closures should strongly consider opening an
    account in order to reduce the likelihood of encountering delays at the toll plazas.

Route 1&9 T

  • Adaptive traffic signal control technology and entrance ramp improvements will help accommodate additional traffic heading toward Jersey City and New York City. Route 1&9 T will be able to accommodate nearly 1,700 additional vehicles per morning peak period.

Motorists can avoid delays by paying attention to Variable Message Signs that will display information along their route. Some of the signs will allow motorists to compare trip times and help them choose the quickest route at a given time.
