HANOVER — New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced the ramp from Route 10 westbound to I-287 southbound will be closed overnight tonight as a roadway improvement project advances in Hanover, Morris County.

Beginning at 10:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, until 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 22, NJDOT’s contractor, Crisdel Construction Group is scheduled to close the ramp from Route 10 westbound to I-287 southbound in Hanover for excavation and grading work. The following signed detour will be in place overnight:

Route 10 westbound to I-287 southbound detour:

· Motorists traveling on Route 10 westbound wishing to take the ramp to I-287 southbound will be directed to continue on Route 10 westbound
· Take Ridgedale Avenue South U-turn (Dryden Way/Ridgedale Avenue/Cedar Knolls exit)
· Stay left for Ridgedale Avenue/Cedar Knolls
· Keep right and take the ramp to Route 10 eastbound
· Take the ramp to I-287 southbound

The $4.5 million state-funded projects will reconstruct a half-mile portion of Route 10 westbound, which is in poor condition. The project also includes the installation of improved overhead signage and guiderail replacement, which will be completed during the week following the completion of weekend closures. The project is anticipated to be complete by fall 2020.

Advance warning and variable messaging signs are being utilized to provide advance notification to the motoring public of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work.
