Wright-Debow Road Bridge over I-195 reopened as bridge replacement project nears completion in Jackson
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced the reopening of the Wright-Debow Road Bridge over I-195 and overnight lane closures on I-195 for the next two weeks as a bridge replacement project nears completion in Jackson, Ocean County.
On Friday, June 18, NJDOT’s contractor, Berto Construction, Inc., opened the newly-reconstructed Wright-Debow Road Bridge over I-195 to two way traffic. The bridge was closed for reconstruction in November 2020.
Additional overnight single-lane closures will be required on I-195 between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., Monday through Thursday to remove temporary shielding and paint the bridge. These closures are anticipated to continue for approximately two weeks. Work is beginning on I-195 eastbound, and will move to the westbound side as the project advances.
The $2.8 million federally-funded project replaced the bridge deck, approaches, and parapets, which were in poor condition. The new bridge features one 12-foot lane and shoulder in each direction.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.
