New Jersey's Pulaski Skyway to be closed over weekend

Friday, August 23, 2013

The 80-year-old Pulaski Skyway will be closed throughout the weekend because of construction work and all Route 1 and 9 traffic will be detoured.

Workers will install a new floor beam that supports the travel lanes over the Tonnelle Circle in Jersey City between 9 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday.

The northbound lanes will be closed at the Skyway entrance near Newark Liberty International Airport. Routes 1 and 9 south will be closed at the ramp from Route 139 west to the Tonnelle Circle.

Motorists heading south on 1 and 9 trying to get onto the Skyway near the Tonnelle Circle will be able to do so. Westbound motorists on Route 139 will be able to cut through the circle and get on the Skyway southbound.
