Morristown, NJ – Beginning Friday night at 9:00 p.m. and continuing through Saturday at 8:00 a.m., traffic pattern shifts will be implemented on I-287 northbound and southbound. This improvement is part of the Morris County Roadway Rehabilitation Project.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has announced that Tilcon, who has been contracted to complete the work, will “close two northbound lanes to reposition construction barrier and restripe lanes on the I-287 northbound bridge over Eden Lane in Hanover Township”. It is possible that a third lane will close later in the evening as they are setting up the new traffic pattern. The DOT has indicated that at least two lanes will be maintained. Lane closures will be scheduled during overnight and off peak hours to minimize motorists. The project is expected to be completed this fall.
“The new traffic pattern will remove the single left lane “cattle chute” within construction barriers in the northbound direction and add a fifth lane. The new traffic pattern will shift all five lanes to right of the work zone”.
The $27.4 million project will improve I-287 in both directions from the South Street underpass in Morristown to the Littleton Road overpass in Parsippany.
