ROADWORK ALERT: Route 10 Eastbound to be Closed for Bridge Work in East Hanover and Livingston--Traffic to be Detoured

May 10, 2014 at 1:15 AM

TRENTON, NJ – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced that Route 10 eastbound will be closed starting this weekend as work begins to reconstruct the bridge over the Passaic River, connecting East Hanover in Morris County with Livingston in Essex County.

At 8:00 p.m. Saturday, May 10, NJDOT’s contractor, Persistent Construction Inc., is scheduled to close Route 10 eastbound at River Road to begin demolition and reconstruction of the eastbound side of the bridge. Eastbound traffic will be detoured for the entire length of the project. Route 10 westbound traffic will be maintained throughout the project.

  • Motorists traveling on Route 10 eastbound will be directed to River Road, Old Mount Pleasant Avenue and back onto Route 10 eastbound after Okner Parkway.
  • Local traffic for businesses between River Road and the bridge and between Okner Parkway and the bridge will be maintained at all times.
  • Temporary traffic signals are planned at the intersection of River Road and Old Mount Pleasant Avenue, and at Old Mount Pleasant Avenue and Okner Parkway to improve traffic flow at those intersections during construction.

The $3.5 million, federally-funded project will replace the existing structurally-deficient and functionally obsolete bridge in stages, closing one side of the bridge for reconstruction at a time. During Stage I, the south half of the bridge (eastbound lanes) will be reconstructed, which is anticipated to last for approximately three months. Once complete, the contractor will then close the westbound half of the bridge and shift westbound traffic onto the newly constructed eastbound side. 

Dynamic message signs will be deployed on Route 10 to alert motorists of the upcoming traffic pattern changes. NJDOT anticipates the project reaching completion by the end of 2014. 

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information.

Waze.
