More than four miles of Route 3 in both directions in North Jersey will be resurfaced from just west of the Route 17 Interchange to the Interchange with Route 1&9 in Rutherford, East Rutherford and Secaucus.

The $8.6 million project is designed to improve safety for motorists and extend the pavement lifespan along the full width of the roadway including all travel lanes, turn lanes, shoulders and median openings.  Signage will also be upgraded and guide rail and roadway striping will be provided as needed.  Certain locations will also require traffic signal modifications and ADA-compliant curb ramp upgrades.

"This project will provide a smoother and safer Route 3 to benefit thousands of motorists, demonstrating the Christie Administration's commitment to funding state-of-good-repair projects throughout New Jersey," said Jim Simpson, New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner.
