ABC7 Traffic Center
Inspections continue at NJ Turnpike overpass
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP -- Southbound lanes on the New Jersey Turnpike in Mercer County have been reopened.
Two southbound lanes were closed Thursday morning so engineers could conduct a more detailed inspection of the Interstate 195 overpass that was damaged in an accident Wednesday. They're scheduled to conduct another inspection Friday.
Authorities say a dump truck overturned and burst into flames, killing the driver. The accident caused shutdowns and major traffic delays on the toll road and 195.
Westbound traffic continues to be restricted to one lane at the I-195 overpass in Robbinsville.
I-195 traffic will eventually use a new overpass that's under construction. A Department of Transportation spokesman says the overpass was originally scheduled to be completed in December but that officials will try to speed up that timetable.
