Route 94 lane closures Wednesday as bridge over Blair Creek maintenance project is completed in Blairstown Twp

Alternating traffic will be in place during the day

BLAIRSTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Tuesday announced daytime lane closures on the Route 94 Bridge over Blair Creek as a bridge maintenance project is completed in Blairstown Township.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, October 7, NJDOT’s contractor, IEW Construction Group, is scheduled to close the northbound lane on Route 94 at the Bridge over Blair Creek and set up an alternating traffic pattern in the southbound lane. Later that day, the northbound lane will reopen with alternating traffic, and the southbound lane will be closed. These closures will allow the contractor to remove construction barrier from both sides of the
roadway.

By 3:00 p.m., both lanes will reopen and the roadway will be restored to its original configuration, with one lane in each direction.

The project, which made repairs to the bridge piers, is part of a larger $7 million state-funded maintenance contract to repair timber, concrete and drainage structures in eight counties throughout North Jersey.

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 511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information
