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

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Friday announced the ramp from Route 10 westbound to I-287 southbound, and one lane on Route 10 westbound, will be closed this weekend as a roadway improvement project advances in Hanover Township. This work was previously scheduled to begin on April 24, but was postponed due to inclement weather.

Beginning at 7:00 p.m., Friday, May 1, until 7:00 a.m. Monday, May 4, NJDOT’s contractor, Crisdel Construction Group, Inc., is scheduled to close the ramp from Route 10 westbound to I-287 southbound, as well as one lane on Route 10 westbound in the vicinity of the I-287 interchange. This closure will allow the contractor to complete full-box reconstruction of the roadway. One lane of westbound traffic will be maintained at all times during the weekend closures. Lane closures on Route 10 westbound are scheduled for the next two weekends as the roadway reconstruction continues. The following signed detour will be in place this weekend:

Route 10 westbound to I-287 southbound detour:
• Motorists traveling on Route 10 westbound wishing to take the ramp to I-287 southbound 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 southbound

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.
