I-80 eastbound Exit 4B ramp to Route 46 eastbound traffic shift Friday night in Warren County

KNOWLTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County)  – The I-80 eastbound Exit 4B ramp to Route 46 eastbound is scheduled to have a traffic shift Friday night as a pavement preservation project advances in Knowlton Township

Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, April 5, until 8 a.m., Saturday, April 6, a traffic shift on the I-80 eastbound Exit 4B ramp to Route 46 eastbound/Route 94 southbound is scheduled tonight.

Temporary, 15-minute stoppages may be required to place construction barrier and restripe the roadway. Motorists are advised to slow down, use caution and expect delays or plan an alternate route.

By 8:00 a.m. Saturday, traffic on the ramp will be shifted to the right onto the newly reconstructed roadway, and the left side of the ramp will be closed for full-depth pavement reconstruction.  This traffic pattern is expected to remain in place through summer 2024.

Last summer, the 35-footwide ramp, which typically carries one lane of traffic from I-80 eastbound to Route 46 eastbound/Route 94 southbound with shoulders on either side of the travel lane, was split in half with traffic was shifted to the left side of the ramp, while the right side was reconstructed.

The work is part of the $14.5 million federally funded pavement preservation project that will reconstruct approximately one and a half miles of Route 46 between I-80 and Walnut Road in Knowlton Township.

In addition, the project will upgrade drainage and guiderail throughout the project limits, as well as install Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) at the Route 46/Route 94 and I-80 interchanges. The project is expected to be completed in fall 2025.

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 construction updates and real-time travel information.
