A public meeting hosted by the New Jersey State Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will provide information on travel options for commuters during the upcoming scheduled closure of the Pulaski Skyway.
The meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 2nd, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Kean University STEM Building, opposite the main campus at 1000 Morris Avenue.
Free parking is available at the rear of the building.
NJDOT will close both of the northbound lanes on the Pulaski Skyway for two years starting on Saturday, April 12, 2014; these are the lanes heading into Jersey City and Manhattan. The closure is needed in order to perform rehabilitation work on the 80-year-old structure.
Even though the Pulaski Skyway is not located within Roselle Park or even Union County, the closure is expected to impact traffic patterns throughout the region, including Interstate 78, Route 1&9, and Route 22.
Those residents unable to attend can still find details about the Skyway closure, including rail, bus, vanpooling, and carpooling options by visiting www.pulaskiskyway.com (link).
