RIDGEFIELD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New Jersey Turnpike Authority says it has postponed a bridge repair project that was expected to cause major delays this weekend.

The reason: inclement weather.

The work was going to reduce northbound traffic from two lanes to one on the toll road’s Western Spur in the vicinity of the Vince Lombardi Service Area in Ridgefield, Bergen County.

No new date has been set.
