JERSEY CITY, NJ – The southbound traffic on the Pulaski Skyway is scheduled to be shifted completely onto the newly finished northbound lanes between the Hackensack and Passaic rivers this weekend, and in order to set up the crossover the Skyway will be closed in both directions.

The span will be closed from 7 a.m. Saturday, June 11 through 3 p.m. Sunday, June 12, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).

The full closure includes most on and off ramps, including the southbound “on” ramp from Tonnele Circle. The ramp from Route 139 West to I-280/Route 7 and Routes 1 & 9 southbound will remain open.

In addition, the Skyway will have a single-lane closure in the southbound direction from 11 p.m. Friday, June 10 through 7 a.m. Saturday, June 11 and again from 3 p.m. Sunday, June 12 until 5 a.m. Monday, June 13.

Before the morning commute on Monday, June 13, southbound traffic will be shifted completely to the northbound lanes from just before the Broadway ramp through the end of the Skyway, where traffic will merge back onto Routes 1 & 9 southbound.

The NJDOT will be using variable message signs to provide notification to motorists of traffic pattern changes associated with the work.

For alternate routes to help motorists navigate the closures, the DOT has created a video which can be found on the NJDOT YouTube channel.

There is a project-specific website, pulaskiskyway.com, which is updated as work progresses.

For more information, motorists can call (973) 776-7400 or email pulaski.skyway@dot.nj.gov. They can also follow the project on Twitter @skywayrehab or visit 511nj.org for travel advisories.
