Pulaski Skyway closed for weekend

JERSEY CITY – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced that the Pulaski Skyway is scheduled to be closed in both directions this weekend to install deck panels as the rehabilitation of the historic 84-year-old bridge advances. Beginning at 11 p.m., Friday, Sept. 23 through 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25, NJDOT’s contractor, CCA Civil Inc.-Daidone Joint Venture, is scheduled to close the Pulaski Skyway southbound at the off ramp to I-280/Route 7 and Route 1&9 southbound to install deck panels and related concrete work. The full closure includes most on and off ramps, including the southbound on ramp from Tonnele Circle. The ramp from the Route 139 westbound to I-280/Route 7 and Route 1&9 Truck southbound will remain open. NJDOT has created a video that shows options for alternate routes to help motorists navigate the closures, which can be found on the NJDOT YouTube channel.
