Route 10 westbound ramp to I-287 northbound to close this weekend as roadway improvement project advances in Hanover Twp

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Thursday announced the ramp from Route 10 westbound to I-287 northbound, and one lane in each direction on Route 10, will be closed this weekend as a roadway improvement project advances in Hanover Township.

Beginning at 7:00 p.m. Friday, May 8, until 7:00 a.m. Monday, May 11, NJDOT’s contractor, Crisdel Construction Group, Inc., is scheduled to close the ramp from Route 10 westbound to I-287 northbound, as well as one lane on Route 10 in each direction in the vicinity of the I-287 interchange in Hanover. This closure will allow the contractor to complete a full-box reconstruction of the roadway. One lane of traffic will be maintained at all times during the weekend closures. Additional lane closures on Route 10 westbound are scheduled for next weekend as the roadway reconstruction continues. The following signed detour will be in place this weekend:

Route 10 westbound to I-287 northbound detour:
• Motorists traveling on Route 10 westbound wishing to take the ramp to I-287 northbound will be
directed to continue on Route 10 westbound;
• Take Ridgedale Avenue South U-turn (Dryden Way/Ridgedale Ave./Cedar Knolls exit);
• Stay left for Ridgedale Ave./Cedar Knolls;
• Keep right and take the ramp to Route 10 eastbound;
• Take the ramp to I-287 northbound.

The $4.5 million state-funded project will reconstruct a half-mile portion of Route 10 westbound, which
is in poor condition. The project also includes the installation of improved overhead signage and
guiderail replacement, which will be completed during the week following the completion of weekend

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
