New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the left and center lanes on I-295 southbound at mile post 64 in Hamilton are being closed immediately for emergency bridge repairs.
NJDOT crews will be repairing a hole with exposed rebar and loose concrete in the center lane of the bridge over Hamilton Avenue just past Exit 63. Motorists should expect heavy congestion and delays on I-295 south of Route 1 during the evening commute. Construction will not affect I-295 northbound traffic.
Variable message signs are being utilized to provide advance notification to the motoring public of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information.
