New Jersey Department of Transportation officials say the Pulaski Skyway will be closed to New York-bound drivers starting in February 2014.

Two out of the roadway’s four lanes will be redecked. Only outbound traffic will be allowed during the construction.

The project will cost $1 billion.

The 80-year-old highway carries 67,000 motor vehicles per day along a portion of Route 1&9 that crosses a 3.5-mile elevated structure between Newark and Jersey City.

It serves as an express link for cars and buses to and from the Holland Tunnel.

Transportation officials say they’ll hold a series of meetings and have forms on their website for public input on commuting alternatives.
