Update: Road Repair Traffic Reported Cleared by Exit 30 on Rte. 287N
Late morning back-up seen just south of Interchange 30 off Route 287 in northern Basking Ridge.
Traffic heading north along Interstate 287 in Bernards Township a few miles south of exit 30, in northern Basking Ridge, reportedly was clogged at about 11 a.m. on Thursday morning. However, state police at Somerville barracks said the road work had been cleared as of shortly before 12:30 p.m.
The backup was in the vicinity of road repairs at milepost 30.2 on the northbound side of the highway. The heavy congestion reportedly stretched out two to three miles south of that point, until traffic was merged into one lane by the repair location.
