Jersey Department of Transportation
(NJDOT) officials today announced
a temporary overnight closure
of the Route 24 westbound ramp
to I-287 northbound to repair
potholes in Hanover, Morris County.
The ramp has significant pothole
damage necessitating a priority
repair, which will require an overnight
detour while the work is being done.
On Thursday, March 20, between
8 p.m. and 3 a.m. NJDOT's maintenance
crews will use a hot asphalt mix
to permanently patch the most serious
potholes in this area, requiring
the overnight ramp closure.
Motorists traveling on Route 24
westbound that want to access I-287
northbound will be directed to get
off at Exit 1B Whippany Road (CR
511) and take Park Avenue/Cedar
Knolls Road to South Jefferson Road
to Mount Pleasant Avenue (Route
10) to I-287 northbound.
Access from Route 24 westbound
to I-287 southbound, and I-287 traffic
traveling to Route 24 eastbound
are not affected by the construction.
Variable message signs will notify
motorists of the traffic pattern
changes. The precise timing of
the work is subject to change due
to weather or other factors. Motorists
