The work is part of a $9.6 million statewide Drawbridge Preventative Maintenance Contract. Variable messaging signs are being utilized to provide advance notification to the motoring public of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work, the department said.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors, according to the DOT. Motorists are encouraged to check the department’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information or the NJDOT Facebook page.
