The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) reports that I-80 Express eastbound will be closed and detoured tonight in Parsippany-Troy Hills, Morris County. In addition, the left lane on I-80 eastbound Local will be closed just before Exit 47A at milepost 46.2.

Beginning at 10:00 p.m. tonight, Thursday, May 25, until 5:00 a.m. tomorrow, Friday, May 26, NJDOT is scheduled to close and detour the I-80 Express eastbound lanes with all traffic directed to use Exit 45 to access I-80 eastbound Local. In addition, the left lane on I-80 eastbound Local will be closed overnight just before the ramp to I-280 eastbound. The closures are necessary to make concrete deck repairs on the I-80 eastbound Bridge over Route 46. At least one lane of traffic will be maintained on I-80 eastbound Local during construction. The following detour will be in place:

I-80 Express eastbound to I-280 eastbound:

  • Motorists on I-80 Express eastbound wishing to take I-280 eastbound will be directed to
    take Exit 45 to Lake Hiawatha/Whippany, which puts traffic onto I-80 eastbound Local
  • Continue on I-80 eastbound Local
  • Take Exit 47A to I-280/The Oranges/Newark

The work is part of a $22.6 million state-funded maintenance project to repair concrete structures at various locations in eight counties throughout North Jersey.
