Lane Closures Scheduled for I-287 Northbound in Harding

Traffic Disruptions Expected as State-funded Infrastructure Improvements Begin

HARDING, NJ — Motorists traveling on I-287 northbound in Harding, Morris County, will encounter lane and shoulder closures starting Tuesday, June 11, due to essential infrastructure improvements. The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) announced that these disruptions are part of a $13.1 million project aimed at rehabilitating stormwater facilities across several counties.

The closure will affect the right lane and shoulder between the off-ramp and on-ramp to the I-287 northbound Truck Rest Stop. This is to facilitate the installation of construction barriers needed for concrete repairs. The closures are scheduled from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM on Tuesday, with at least two lanes remaining open to ensure minimal impact on traffic flow.

During the same period, barriers will also be installed along the right curb of the on-ramp from the Truck Rest Stop to I-287 northbound. Although the right lane will reopen by 3:30 PM on Tuesday, the shoulder and right curb on the ramp will remain closed for several weeks for ongoing concrete repairs.

NJDOT urges drivers to exercise caution and patience when traveling through the construction zones. Delays are expected, and motorists are advised to consider alternate routes. Variable Message Signs will be in place to provide advance notification of traffic pattern changes.
