Sinkhole closes lane on northbound New Jersey Turnpike

    It’s going to be a long afternoon for those of you traveling northbound on the New Jersey Turnpike. We’ve got a sinkhole on our hands.

    The left lane is closed south of Interchange 8 in East Windsor Township, and as of 1 p.m., traffic had backed up 11 miles. Things could still be ugly during the evening rush hour, so those who can should take an alternative route.

    Can’t avoid the mess? We’ve got you covered, NewsWorks Tonight debuts at 6 p.m. on 91 FM. We’ll keep you company for a half hour.
