Department of Transportation


Starting in December 2013, work under Contract 2 required the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to implement a movable barrier system that provides motorists on Route 139 Lower Roadway with two travel lanes in the peak direction, meaning eastbound motorists are provided two travel lanes in the morning and westbound motorists are provided two travel lanes in the evening. When Contract 3 began and the Pulaski Skyway northbound travel lanes were closed, the Route 139 Lower Roadway provides motorists with one travel lane eastbound and two travel lanes westbound.

Pre-Phase 1 (Completed)
  • Remove Lower Roadway median barrier and replace with movable barrier
Phase 1 (Completed)
  • Construct detour road, Lower Roadway drainage and retaining walls
Phases 2, 3 and 4 (Ongoing)
  • Deck and column replacement on the Conrail and Hoboken Viaducts, steel replacement and repair, lighting and intersection improvements

Intersection closures and detours on the eastbound side of Route 139 will be necessary during these phases.

Phase 5
  • Lower Roadway barrier replacement, final pavement
Phase 6
  • Upper Roadway final pavement
