PARSIPPANY — New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced daytime and evening lane closures on approximately two and a half miles of Route 46 for the start of a resurfacing project in Parsippany.

 Starting Monday, March 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and again tonight from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and continuing during off-peak hours and weeknights until late summer of 2016, NJDOT’s contractor, Schifano Construction Corp. is scheduled to temporarily close lanes and shoulders along Route 46 eastbound and westbound from Fox Hill Road in Mountain Lakes to Columbus Way. Initial project work will consist of sign installation and utility work. Milling and paving work is expected to start within a few weeks.

The $3 million state-funded resurfacing project will maintain at least one travel lane in each direction at all times to minimize the impact to motorists. Lane closures will be during off-peak hours. There will be temporary ramp closures with signed detours during overnight hours.

The Project is expected to be completed by late summer of 2016.

Variable message signs and detour signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the resurfacing project. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road or ramp closures.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
