PARSIPANY, NJ- The Route 202 ramp onto Route 80 eastbound in Parsippany will be closed at 11 p.m. on or about May 16 for 6-12 weeks (weather dependent) while a new ramp is being constructed. There will be no access to Route 80 eastbound from Route 202 while this construction is underway. Traffic congestion is expected to be heavy in the area throughout this project. Please plan alternate routes.
NJ DOT will be updating us as their work progresses. The ramp to be closed is located at the intersection of Frontage Rd. and Marmora Rd. Frontage Rd. will remain open to local traffic. Very heavy delays are expected on Rt. 202 between Rt. 10, Parsippany Blvd. and Cherry Hill Rd. between Rt. 46 and Rt. 202.
The best route to access Rt. 80 in either direction would be from Rt. 287. Individuals commuting to and from the Mack-Cali Campus located near Rt. 202 (Sylvan Way, Campus Dr., Century Dr., Hilton Ct., Dryden Way and Entin Rd.) should travel on Dryden Way to Rt. 10 East to Rt. 287 North to access Rt. 80 in either direction and avoid very heavy delays expected on Rt. 202 and commercial areas in that vicinity.
Local residents may travel on Rt. 287 North from the Parsippany Rd. entrance ramp to access Rt. 80 in either direction. Very heavy traffic congestion is expected in the area. Please, begin to use alternate routes of travel to access Rt. 80 at this time avoiding Rt. 202 in order to get comfortable with your new commute before the ramp is closed. Thank you for your patience and cooperation while the construction is underway.
