Urgent Traffic Alerts for Parsippany-Troy Hills: Water Main Break and Congestion Updates

Major disruptions reported on US 46 and New Rd today due to a water main break; local authorities advise alternative routes.

Parsippany-Troy Hills Township - A water main break has caused the closure of all lanes on the exit ramp of US 46 eastbound at New Rd as of 11:04 am. This incident has triggered a cascade of traffic disruptions, including heavy traffic and congestion in key areas, compelling local drivers to seek alternate routes.

The break has not only resulted in the immediate closure of crucial road segments but has also led to traffic congestion on New Rd eastbound, stretching from Edwards Rd to US-46, with the current travel time being less than 5 minutes. Additionally, heavy traffic has been reported on US 46 eastbound, from east of I-80 to New Rd, also with a travel time of under 5 minutes.

Moreover, operational activities tied to the water main break on New Rd have necessitated the closure of all lanes on the exit ramps to Exit 1W on I-280 in both directions, further complicating the day's traffic flow. These developments are part of a broader impact on the township's transportation network, prompting swift responses from local authorities.

Residents and commuters are advised to exercise caution and consider alternative routes where possible. Local traffic management and emergency services are on the scene, working diligently to mitigate the effects of the water main break and restore normal traffic flow as swiftly as safety considerations allow.

The situation remains dynamic, and updates will be provided as more information becomes available. Motorists are urged to stay informed about the latest traffic advisories and plan their travels accordingly to avoid delays.
