UNION COUNTY, NJ - Union County commuters and other stakeholders will get a chance to learn firsthand about their travel options during the upcoming Pulaski Skyway closure at a public meeting hosted by the New Jersey State Department of Transportation (DOT). The meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 2, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., at the Kean University STEM Building, opposite the main campus at 1000 Morris Avenue. Free parking is available at the rear of the building.

“I encourage all members of the commuting public to attend this meeting, so you can contribute your questions, insights and concerns as DOT prepares for the closure,” said Freeholder Chairman Christopher Hudak.

DOT will close both of the northbound lanes on the Pulaski Skyway for two years starting on Saturday, April 12. The closure is needed in order to perform rehabilitation work on the 80-year-old structure.

The Skyway is not located within Union County but the closure is expected to impact traffic patterns throughout the region, including Interstate 78, Route 1&9, and Route 22.

“The Freeholder Board asked DOT to conduct a public meeting in Union County because the impact of the closure will go beyond the Skyway to affect many other commuters who travel in and through Union County,” said Freeholder Sergio Granados, who is liaison to the Union County Transportation Advisory Board.

For more details about the Skyway closure, including rail, bus, vanpooling, and carpooling options, visit DOT online at pulaskiskyway.com.

Convenient links to all regional transit are also available on the Union County website at ConneXions, ucnj.org/connect.
