NJDOT Starts Route 9 Bridge Repairs Wednesday

If you travel on Route 9 North over the NJ Turnpike through Woodbridge, watch for shifting traffic and lane closures for the next three weeks.

NJDOT Starts Route 9 Bridge Repairs Wednesday

Commuters, take note: a northbound lane of the Route 9 bridge over the NJ Turnpike through Woodbridge will be closed for repairs starting Wednesday, September 26. 

One of the three existing travel lanes will be closed for approximately the next three weeks for deck and surface repairs, the NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT) said Tuesday.

The construction zone will start on the right half of the bridge and move towards the left; two travel lanes will be maintained at all times, NJDOT said in a statement.

On or about October 22, the contractor, D’Annunzio and Sons, will begin repair work to the southbound bridge over the Turnpike.  That work will require similar traffic pattern changes and lane closures on Route 9 southbound.  

Dynamic Message Signs will be in place at each end of the work zone to alert the motoring public of the traffic pattern changes.

The $1 million project is expected to be complete in November.

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