Route 94 northbound lane closure begins Friday for a priority culvert repair in Frelinghuysen Twp.

Alternating traffic will be in place during construction

FRELINGHUYSEN TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials Thursday announced Route 94 northbound will be closed with alternating traffic using the southbound lane beginning Friday for a priority culvert repair project in Frelinghuysen Township.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. Friday, April 22, NJDOT’s contractor, IEW Construction Group, is scheduled to close the northbound lane on Route 94 at mile post 12.5, which is just before Lincoln Laurel Road, to restripe the road and install temporary traffic signals. Two-way traffic will be maintained using an alternating traffic pattern in the southbound lane. This traffic pattern is expected to be in place for approximately three months.

On Monday, April 25 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., the contractor will install construction barrier to establish a work zone in the northbound lane. The northbound lane closure will allow the contractor to demolish and reconstruct the headwall on the culvert under Route 94.

The project is part of a larger $7.7 million state-funded maintenance contract to repair timber, concrete and drainage structures in eight counties throughout North Jersey.

Variable messaging signs are being utilized to provide advance notification to the motoring public of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work. NJDOT will provide more information before any lane closures are scheduled.

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 construction updates and real-time travel information.
