MONTVILLE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Thursday announced a daytime right lane closure on I-287 southbound as a drainage improvement project advances in Montville Township.
Beginning at 9:00 a.m. Friday, January 22, until 3:00 p.m., NJDOT’s contractor, I.E.W. Construction Group, Inc., is scheduled to close the right lane on I-287 southbound near the Brook Valley Road overpass. This closure will allow the contractor to remove guiderail and install construction barrier, creating a work zone in the shoulder. Two lanes of southbound traffic will be maintained throughout the day. The right shoulder will remain closed for approximately two months.
This project is part of a larger $6.7 million state-funded maintenance and drainage repair contract to make improvements in various locations in eight counties throughout North Jersey. In this location, the contractor is repairing a sinkhole and a drainage retention basin on the southbound side of the roadway.
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 for real-time travel information.
