Priority pavement rehabilitation work will require the full closure of Route 18 northbound in Tinton Falls this Friday night between Wyckoff Road/Hope Road and the Garden State Parkway, NJ Department Of Transportation officials announced.
Route 18 northbound is scheduled to be closed to motorists around milepost 14 on Friday night, September 20, from 9 p.m. to around 8 a.m. the following morning, weather depending. Route 18 northbound carries two travel lanes, with an auxiliary lane, in this location.
Most motorists will be detoured to Exit 13A (Wayside) onto Wyckoff Road south to Hope Road, follow Hope Road north underneath Route 18 to the ramp back onto Route 18 northbound. Those destined for Exit 13B (for Route 36/Eatontown/Long Branch) will be able to access that ramp, but the road will be closed beyond that point to all traffic.
Variable message signs will be utilized to provide advance notification of the closure and associated detour route.
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 construction updates and real-time travel information.
