Just an FYI, you can always contact the police non-emergency number to find out if roads are open or closed.

when you get off 80, you can only go straight thru Allamuchy or get back onto 80 to hope or budd lake. 517 closed both ways there, as of 30 mins ago!

I live in PV.

My grandaughter tried that and it worked. She is on my guest list. Trying to get to work at the Panther Valley Mall. Around 4 PM.


Still closed at 7:15 PM.


Is it still closed?

What the heck happened there?


Apparently, a tree fell in the wires.


Waze app is telling me it's open?? 11:30PM

Can anyone confirm that?

which shell station? There are two. One by the rt 80 exit and one bypanther valley


From Hackettstown, you can reach the Shell station on the Panther Valley side of I-80. The barrier is just past Bald Eagle Road.

517 is still closed from Panther Valley Entrance to 80 East Entrance (Rutherfurd Hall) and then from Shell gas station (past 80 entrance) to Pub 517.

Somebody needs to report the closure in the Waze app. I tried editing the map from my work computer, but apparently my Waze status is not high enough to edit the map.

Where exactly is or was the problem at.


When I went by at 7:30am, I was able to drive past the barrier, but could not get onto I-80W. Could only get onto I-80E, as the West entrance was blocked completely at the light before that. Can we get through to 80W now?

Bob: Barricaded between Panther Valley Development entrance and Rt. 80 going northbound.

also blocked off by Shell to the North side of Rt. 517 last night.

I knew where it was blocked but where were the trees and wires down.


That's a long time, a long detour.

Went by 35 Min ago and 517 was barricded at the Shell at rt 80 and was also barricaded down at Pub 517 going towards rt 80

You can enter Rt. 80 East, but you cannot access the entrance of Rt. 80 West from Panther Valley.

Emily

Yes. 517 is open past the pond & both 80 E & W are accessible. 517 N is closed @ Allamuchy village. Need to take a left into 612 towards Johnsonburg.

didn't someone say yesterday that there were no road blocks going on Rt. 517 to Rt. 80. So I went this morning on 517 and there was a barricade just past Panther Valley development. Forget Rt. 80, b ut people were crossing the barricades.

can someone answer for 7:30 pm on Wed, please: if coming from Hackettstown, w/ panther valley on your LEFT, can you get onto Rt. 80 westbound (or eastbound).

what's the status tonight, Wednesday? Thank you.

Going North on Rt. 517 is opened to both directions of Rt. 80.

I'm not sure if Rt.517 is still blocked off by the Shell gas station north of Rt. 80.
