JERSEY CITY - (AP) - Motorists who use the Pulaski Skyway will need to find alternate routes starting this weekend.
The 83-year-old span will be closed in both directions over the course of eight weekends this spring.
Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday, contractors will begin to remove and install floor beams. New deck panels also will be added to the north side.
