On Wednesday, July 7, NJDOT will shift Smith Street eastbound traffic to the right onto the new bridge deck with the work zone in the center portion of the roadway. Westbound traffic will remain in its current configuration with one lane shifted to the right.
The $1.9 million federally funded project, which includes replacing the Smith Street bridge deck, resurfacing the approaches and installing new guide rail and sidewalks, is anticipated to be completed this fall 2010.
Variable message signs will notify motorists of upcoming traffic pattern changes. NJDOT provides emergency roadway information, construction schedule updates and real time traffic information and images at www.nj511.info
