Traffic and Travel Advisories 

Road Closed Street Work Jersey City is only 14.7 square miles in area, but it contains over a hundred miles in roads. Normally it’s pretty simple to get from one place to another, and while the City encourages people to use our many public transportation options, sometimes you do just have to take the car.

Usually, traffic flows pretty well. There are those occasions, however, whether planned or unplan- ned, which cause street closings and traffic diversions. Lets face it—whether you’re commuting to work, visiting the in-laws, or just trying to get the kids to school on time,  it’s helpful to know which routes to avoid and which ones to take before you set out. Check out the links below for current traffic and travel advisories.
