The ramp to the west of Route 46 was closed while workers dumped the rubbish into a roll-off container, and heavy wreckage was rigging and removing the rig.

Traffic to the west was secured for kilometers.

Traffic on Route 46 stretched for miles to the west as heavy wrecked vehicles erected the rig on the ramp to Route 80 and the NJ Turnpike in Ridgefield Park.
