ONGOING TRAFFIC PATTERN CHANGE

Motorists traveling eastbound to Staten Island are re-routed to a new temporary approach ramp as construction continues on the Goethals Bridge Replacement Project.

Motorists exiting the New Jersey Turnpike at Interchange 13 and motorists travelling on I-278 are diverted on to this temporary ramp leading to the Staten-Island bound Goethals Bridge.

Local traffic using the ramp at Cole Place, in Elizabeth, N.J., are detoured westbound to I-278 and then follow a newly constructed U-turn connecting to I-278 eastbound and the new approach ramp.
