NJDOT announced that Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission will be removing a capsized vessel beneath the route 7 bridge over the Passaic River
New Jersey Department of Transportation officials have announced that the Route 21 northbound Exit 6 ramp for Route 7/Belleville/N. Arlington will be closed to traffic today.
NJDOT officials said the ramp is scheduled to be closed from 7 a.m. until around 5 p.m. so workers can remove a capsized vessel underneath the Route 7 bridge at this location by the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission. If the work is completed earlier, the ramp will be reopened accordingly.
Motorists will be directed to Exit 8 for Park Avenue east or west, or to Washington Avenue to Rutgers Street.
The Route 7 bridge will remain in operation and open to motorists during the boat removal work.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org will have up-to-date news on construction updates as well as real-time travel information.
