WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Friday announced the Route 46 eastbound U-turn ramp to Route 46 westbound at Reservoir Road will be closed and detoured for approximately one week in Washington Township as the pavement preservation project advances.
Beginning at 7:00 a.m., Monday, June 8 until 3:00 p.m., Monday, June 15, NJDOT’s contractor Crisdel Group, will close the Route 46 eastbound ramp to Route 46 westbound at Reservoir Road for concrete pavement repair.
Route 46 eastbound ramp to Route 46 westbound detour:
• Motorists on Route 46 eastbound wanting to make a U-turn onto Route 46 westbound near Reservoir Road will be directed to continue on Route 46 eastbound
• Take Route 46 eastbound to Drakestown Road
• Take the left exit at Drakestown Road to make a U-turn onto Route 46 westbound
The $8 million dollar state-funded project will extend the pavement life, improve safety and enhance ride quality for motorists. In addition to milling and paving, the project will make drainage improvements and ADA-upgrades to sidewalks and intersections. The project is expected to be complete by fall 2020.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.
