I sure hope I don't need to see my chiropractor, Genesis Chiropractic, this summer.

Where is that bridge located?

Wow- that is going to be a huge mess for travelers.

And probably cost a fortune.

The article says this was caused by an auto crash?

How much could the driver's insurance possibly be paying towards this?

From the link:

A previous version of this article stated incorrectly that the construction was the result of a previous motor vehicle accident.

More details:

"The project is expected to take 72 calendar days to complete..."

I travel to Bridgewater every day for work, this is going to put a major delay in my commute.

Just go up 46 mountain and make a right on Naughright Rd. - will take you over the mountain and at the light make a left and first right before West Morris High will bring you out to 206 in Chester. Not a bad ride.
Good luck

The detour is also using Naughright and Bartley Roads, so they might still run into heavy and delayed traffic.

Gee, ya think?

A bit of an inconvenience for a while for sure. However it is a much needed repair. NJ is in the top 5 in gas tax in the nation. NJ is #1 in having the worse roads in the nation, naturally. When the transportation trust fund expires next year look for yet another increase in the gas tax to "pay for the repairs and maintenance of our roads in the state". LMAO!!

Greg: where do you see NJ as #1 on the nation for bad roads? I don’t see how that is the case after traveling to PA for example. :-)

There's at least cross-overs for Schooley's, the first in Beatystown, the last at Port Murray, and at least one in between.

Hard left at the bottom and you come up the the bridge, continue on to Chester. A right brings you to Califon where if you continue East you come out at white church, garden/vege stand on 517. Watch out, if you miss a turn on the mountain you can end up near Clinton.....

Point Mountain is great rally-type road, enjoy.
