Afternoon Traffic Delays Plague Major Highways in Morris County

Traffic on I-80, NJ 24, and I-287 While Construction on NJ 10 Adds to the Afternoon Commute Chaos

Afternoon commuters in Morris County face a wave of traffic delays on multiple major highways today. From Parsippany-Troy Hills Township to Wharton, disruptions stretch across I-80, NJ 24, and I-287, leading to extended travel times for motorists. Additionally, construction work on NJ 10 compounds the congestion, closing a right lane and causing further slowdowns.

As of 3:56 PM, I-80 westbound is experiencing significant delays stretching from Exit 42 - US 202/Littleton Road in Parsippany-Troy Hills Township to Exit 34 - NJ 15 in Wharton. The usually bustling artery was choked with traffic, and commuters will see a 10-15 minute delay.

Meanwhile, NJ 24 hasn't been spared either, as traffic jams in both directions add to commuters' woes. According to reports at 3:04 PM, there were delays on NJ 24 westbound between East of Exit 1 - CR 511/Whippany Road in Morris Township and I-287 in Hanover Township. The disruption on the westbound lanes followed another delay on NJ 24 eastbound between I-287 and Exit 2 - CR 510/Columbia Turnpike in Hanover Township reported just a minute earlier at 3:03 PM. In both instances, the travel time was extended by less than 5 minutes.

A slowdown reported on I-287 northbound at 3:02 PM caused a traffic disruption that spanned from Exit 37 - NJ 24 in Hanover Township to Exit 40 - CR 511/Parsippany Road in Parsippany-Troy Hills Township, with the current travel time being increased by less than 5 minutes.

Adding to the afternoon congestion, construction activities on NJ 10 westbound ramp to Dryden Way in Hanover Township have one right lane closed as of 4:00 PM. The construction is expected to last until 9:00 PM, likely adding to the evening rush hour delays.

Residents and commuters in the area are urged to plan travel accordingly, accounting for delays. It is always advisable to stay informed about traffic conditions and possibly seek alternative routes during periods of heavy congestion.
