Pulaski Skyway Northbound Broadway Exit Ramp to Jersey City Closes 

Last weekend, as the Pulaski Skyway rehabilitation project continued, the state announced that one of its ramps will be closed for five years.   The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), in a press release, announced the Broadway ramp from the Pulaski Skyway northbound to Route 1&9 Truck in Jersey City will be closed and detoured for reconstruction, as the rehabilitation of the historic 89-year-old bridge advances.

As of last Saturday, November 13, NJDOT’s contractor, Skanska Koch, closed the Broadway exit ramp from the Pulaski Skyway northbound to Route 1&9 Truck in Jersey City to allow the contractor to replace the ramp superstructure and deck.  The Broadway ramp onto the Pulaski Skyway southbound from Jersey City remains closed.  The work is part of Contract 8B of the Pulaski Skyway rehabilitation project, which is being advanced through multiple construction contracts.

The Department is carefully coordinating the Pulaski Skyway project with other regional transportation infrastructure projects to minimize traffic congestion. The following detour will be in place:

Pulaski Skyway North Exit to Broadway Avenue Detour 

• Motorists on the Pulaski Skyway northbound wishing to take the Broadway ramp to Jersey City will be directed to continue north on the Skyway                                                       • Take the next exit ramp for Tonnelle Circle                                                                   • Once in the Circle, motorists can continue onto Route 1&9 northbound or                       • Motorists wishing to travel onto Route 1&9 southbound or Route 1&9 Truck southbound should proceed through the Circle to Route 1&9 northbound                                             • Make a U-turn at County Road and proceed onto Route 1&9 southbound.
