Lane closures scheduled for I-78 westbound in Warren County Dec. 10-13

POHATCONG TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – Daytime and overnight lane closures are scheduled for portion of I-78 westbound in Pohatcong Township from 9:00 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, to 7:00 am. Wednesday, Dec. 13, weather permitting, according to the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission.

During low-traffic-volume overnight hours – 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. (next day) – the affected portion of I-78 westbound will be restricted to a single open travel lane (two of three lanes closed).

During higher-volume daytime and early evening hours – 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. – I-78 westbound will be restricted to two open travel lanes (one of three lanes closed).

Motorists who use the travel-restricted I-78 westbound segment are advised to anticipate potential slowdowns and backups, the commission said.

The Commission urges motorists to reduce speeds and exercise caution whenever approaching active construction zones or restricted travel areas.

The travel restrictions are needed for removal and replacement of a misaligned expansion joint on the overpass that carries I-78 westbound across County Route 519. The short-distance structure is along the Commission’s 4.2-mile-long New Jersey portion of I-78 immediately east of the agency’s I-78 Toll Bridge.

The work will entail some excavation, concrete removal and placement, installation of a compression seal, and other related tasks.
