The travel lanes will be milled and paved the first two nights and the third night will involve the paving of shoulders and tying into the intersecting side streets.
One lane will be closed and northbound traffic will be detoured around the work area each night. Northbound motorists are advised to use West Perry Street to Lafayette Street to NJ Route 109 to US Route 9 during the paving operations. Southbound motorists are advised that they may experience delays during the milling and paving operations. During the day, the roadway will be open, however there will be a drop-off or a lip between the paved and non-paved areas. Motorists shall use caution when transiting this area until the paving operations are completed.
Once the paving is complete, new pavement stripes and markings will be installed.
