Raised pavement marker 

The New Jersey Department of Transportation has announced a long-term lane closure starting this weekend to allow for the start of bridge deck replacement work on Route 15 northbound in Morris County.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, until 5 a.m. Monday, Jan. 23, DOT’s contractor, Ritacco Construction, is scheduled to close the left lane on Route 15 northbound by installing temporary barriers, barrels and signs in the Lake Hopatcong section of Jefferson.

By Monday morning, Route 15 northbound will be temporarily reduced from three lanes to two lanes after the Lake Shawnee Exit, and shifted to the right side of the highway for approximately six months during the first stage of the project to replace the bridge deck over Weldon Brook.
