Route 24 westbound lane closure next week to begin drainage improvement project in Morris Twp.

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Friday announced a lane closure on Route 24 westbound next week to begin a drainage improvement project in Morris Township.

Beginning at 7:00 a.m., Monday, June 15, through 3:00 p.m., NJDOT’s contractor, IEW Construction Group, is scheduled to close the right lane on Route 24 westbound before Exit 1B to place construction barrier to close the right shoulder. At least one lane and Exit 1B will remain open at all times.

The shoulder closure will create a work zone to repair a damaged drainage pipe underneath the roadway. The shoulder is expected to be closed for approximately three weeks.

If work is completed early, the shoulder will be reopened sooner. 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.
