Traffic Advisory: Road Closures and Lane Restrictions in Morris County

Multiple Traffic Disruptions Due to A Downed Tree, A Sinkhole, and Ongoing Construction

Residents and commuters in Morris County are facing a slew of traffic disruptions today due to a downed tree in Hanover Township, a sinkhole in Parsippany-Troy Hills Township, and extensive construction activities across several major roadways. Authorities have announced lane closures and traffic adjustments to accommodate these incidents and ongoing construction projects, urging drivers to plan their routes accordingly.

Downed Tree Causes Lane Closure on NJ 10

As of 12:08 PM, a downed tree has resulted in the closure of one right lane on NJ 10 westbound near Metro West Rd in Hanover Township. Crews are on-site working to clear the obstruction. Motorists are advised to approach the area with caution.

Sinkhole Incident on US 46

Earlier today, at 11:00 AM, a sinkhole emerged on US 46 westbound, just west of I-287 in Parsippany-Troy Hills Township, leading to the closure of one right lane. The situation is under assessment, and repairs are expected to commence shortly.

Construction Projects Impacting I-287, US 46, and More

Several construction projects have been reported, affecting both directions of I-287, US 46, NJ 10, NJ 15, NJ 53, and I-80. These projects involve lane and shoulder closures, with the most significant impact occurring on I-287, where the left shoulder is closed in both northbound and southbound directions between various exits. Construction on US 46 and NJ 10 involves right lane closures, while NJ 15 and NJ 53 see more significant lane restrictions.

Specifically, construction activities on I-287 southbound between North of Exit 35 - NJ 124 in Morristown and North of Exit 34 - CR 663 in Morris Township have led to the right shoulder being closed until 2:00 PM. Additionally, closures on NJ 53 in both directions from South of NJ 10 in Morris Plains to I-80 in Denville Township will see all lanes closed intermittently until 3:00 PM.

Navigating the Disruptions

Motorists are encouraged to seek alternative routes where possible and to remain vigilant of the changes in traffic patterns. The scheduled completion times for these construction projects range from early afternoon to 3:00 PM today, aiming to minimize the impact on peak travel times.

Authorities are working diligently to manage these disruptions and restore normal traffic flow as swiftly as possible. Commuters can stay updated on the situation through local traffic reports and transportation department updates.
