I-80 Closure In Parsippany, New Jersey


I-80 faces even more closures as a project in Parsippany, New Jersey begins it’s new phase. There are plans to rebuild a four-mile stretch of I-80 between mile marker 45.7 to mile marker 43.5, according to the DOT.

Traffic will be re-routed to the express portion of the highway by a temporary crossover ramp.

The contractor involved will reconfigure the express way utilizing the space on the shoulders, which will add a 5th lane.

Starting tonight (Friday night), the single-lane closure will take effect for local and express portions of the highway – which is expected to last for two months. – Drivers will still be able to access the interstage from Rout3 287 and Beverwyck Road.

All I-80 travel lanes will remain open in each direction during peak-period hours throughout construction. Single and double-lane closures will be allowed during overnight and off-peak hours.

The Westbound express lanes will be reconstructed, as will all of the Eastbound lanes.

This stretch of road sees an average of 150,000 vehicles each day – and according to the DOT, it has deteriorated to the point of needing construction. The project is estimated at $73 million.

Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) are being used to warn drivers – construction completion times are subject to change based on fluctuations in the weather.
