I-295 Southbound Ramp to Route 1 in Lawrence to Be Closed Until Spring

The New Jersey Department of Transportation announced yesterday that work to replace the Exit 67 ramp deck from I-295 southbound to Route 1 in Lawrence Township will begin this weekend. The ramp will be closed for about eight weeks

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 7, NJDOT contractor South State, Inc. will close the Exit 67 ramp from I-295 southbound to Route 1. The closure is expected to last until March. Workers will replace the ramp deck and resurface the road.

Drivers attempting to use Exit 67 will be detoured to Exit 65A, then directed onto I-295 northbound, where they will use Exit 67B to access Route 1.

Message signs and lane closure signs are being used throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the deck replacement project, officials said. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road closures.

The timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors, officials said.
