After several delays, the State of New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) plans to close the northbound lanes of the Pulaski Skyway starting this Saturday, April 12.

The $1 billion Pulaski Skyway rehabilitation project is expected to last approximately two years, during which time the Holland Tunnel-bound lanes will be closed to accommodate repairs to the 3.5-mile bridge.

Lanes traveling in the southbound direction (toward Newark) will remain open but will also be impacted by the closure.

The two northbound lanes of the Skyway will be rebuilt first, after which southbound traffic will be shifted to the renovated northbound bridge deck. This will allow repairs to start on the two southbound lanes.

Approximately 32,000 vehicles travel in the northbound direction each day; 9,600 of them during the morning rush hour from 6 to 9 a.m. All commuters who normally use the Skyway to head in that direction, whether to the tunnel, Jersey City, Hoboken, or other Hudson County locations, will need to find alternate routes.

The NJDOT has posted alternate routes and travel options, including carpooling, at www.pulaskiwkyway.com.
