NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Motorists who use the Pulaski Skyway will have a longer wait before the detour and construction signs come down.

The full reopening of the Pulaski Skyway has been pushed back for a third time until Spring 2018.

NJ.com (https://bit.ly/2p0oo9M ) reports the reopening is delayed while contractors replace the retaining walls between the skyway and Route 139. A spokesman for the state Transportation Department says the wall reconstruction will extend the life of the corridor connecting Newark to the Holland Tunnel for the next 75 years.

The walls will be replaced at the same time as the $1 billion project to install a new bridge deck on the skyway. Construction is expected to start in late summer.

Transportation officials say the current skyway project is about 77 percent complete.
