JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Officials are advising commuters who use the Pulaski Skyway that this past week was the exception, not the norm.

No major traffic problems have been reported since northbound lanes were closed on Saturday to repair the 81-year-old span on which 74,000 vehicles travel daily between Newark and Jersey City.

Officials say that’s because Jersey City schools were closed and traffic was lighter with people observing Easter and Passover holidays.

But officials are expecting traffic volume to return to normal next week.

They’re urging motorists to use mass transit including a new park-and-ride bus near Newark airport and new ferry service from Monmouth County during the two-year closure.
