NJ DOT to repave crater-riddled Palisades

Crews are set to begin repaving along the Palisades Interstate Parkway. 

The last time such work was done on the road, which links New York state to the George Washington Bridge, was the mid-1990s. 

Milling and paving will start Monday night in the northbound lanes at the bridge and continue along an 11-mile stretch toward the state border. 

The contractor will be allowed to close one travel lane during off-peak hours.  The $11 million project will resurface the road and three scenic overlooks and include repairs to 13 bridge decks as needed. 

The Palisades Interstate Parkway was completed in 1958 and spans 42 miles from the bridge in Fort Lee to the Bear Mountain Bridge in New York.
