Ramps will be closed at the Tonnele Circle in Jersey City this weekend to replace crash cushions as part of the upgrade of the circle pier protections.
Beginning at 9 p.m., Friday, Oct. 22 until 10 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 23, NJDOT’s contractors will close three ramps through Tonnele Circle to Route 139 eastbound to replace the cushions in and around Tonnele Circle. The following ramps will be closed:
The ramp from Route 1&9 southbound through Tonnele Circle to Route 139 eastbound will be closed with traffic directed to the outside of the circle. Follow the circle approximately three-quarters of the way around to the slip ramp onto Route 139 eastbound.
The two ramps from Route 7 eastbound through the Circle to Route 139 eastbound will be closed with traffic directed to use the right lane to enter the outside of the circle. Follow the circle approximately halfway around to the slip ramp onto Route 139 eastbound.
By Saturday morning, at least one of the two ramps from Route 7 eastbound through the circle to Route 139 eastbound will be reopened.
Motorists should expect congestion and delays around the circle overnight and Saturday morning.
The work is part of the Pulaski Skyway rehabilitation project.
