New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the right two lanes of Route 495 eastbound will be shifted onto the newly completed outside lanes on Friday night, June 28 as the bridge deck replacement project moves into a new stage in North Bergen. In order to establish the traffic shift on Route 495, overnight lane closures are necessary on Route 3 eastbound express lanes and the ramp from the New Jersey Turnpike to Route 495 eastbound.

Currently there are three lanes open in each direction on the Route 495 Bridge. While the traffic shift is being implemented on Friday night, June 28, up to two eastbound lanes will be closed. At least one lane will be maintained overnight. Route 495 westbound will not be affected.
