Pulaski Skyway: NJ Closed Pulaski Skyway for 2 Years

The problem of gridlock will grip the people of the city now that the New Jersey Pulaski Skyway is to be closed off for renovation. For two whole years, repairs amounting to $1 billion will be made to the structure which is literally crumbling. 

The people who used to traverse it have been issued orders to either use mass transit or choose an alternative pathway. The structure is almost a century old and badly needs reparations. 

"The northbound travel lanes on the Route 1&9 Pulaski Skyway will be closed starting April 12th 2014 for approximately 24 months while the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) rehabilitates the bridge deck."

In the past, over 40,000 drivers traversed the road. Now they will have to pick a separate route. The complex pathways that the traffic races past are now facing a burden due to there simply being too many cars and people driving them. There are four lanes on the Pulaski Skyway, two for northbound vehicles and two for southbound cars. 

The whole procedure is being undertaken to minimize congestion. It is meant as an experiment in urban planning. Where there exist such issues as road rage and extreme levels of stress and anxiety due to the bumper to bumper lines of cars, such a scheme had to go into effect. 

The level of effort and massive amounts of skills that will be put into the new project will surely bear fruit. The car drivers that will have to take detours will most probably be frustrated but that is only a temporary uneasiness that must be put up with, Two years will pass in a jiffy and soon the project will have reached completion. 

It will then be opened to the public to traverse when they like and at whatever time they like. Meanwhile, the discomfort is something that must be taken stoically. The 24 months and one billion dollars won’t go to waste. And that is a guarantee.
