State Route 13 Closure in Downtown Newark
Begins Wednesday, August 2nd, at 12:00 AM (midnight)

The traffic pattern on SR 13 and SR 16 will change in downtown Newark for continued bridge work. SR 13 northbound and SR 13 southbound will be closed at SR 16. The detour signs are posted along the project and involve using 21st Street for through traffic. SR 16 eastbound and westbound traffic will have lane shifts where the through travel lanes will use the ramps at the SR 13/Hudson Avenue/Mount Vernon Road interchange. Due to the traffic pattern changes on SR 16, the speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph. Along the ramps in both directions, the signalized intersections will flash yellow meaning that traffic should use caution while traveling along the corridor. Traffic is permitted to turn right from SR 16 onto SR 13 in the right lane only along both corridors. Traffic will not be permitted to turn from SR 13 onto SR 16. This work is expected to last until September.
