A truck struck the sign near exit 8 for Route 539 on the westbound side overnight, splitting it in two and taking down the entire sign structure, according to New Jersey State Police.

Westbound traffic was being diverted off the road at exit 11. However, one lane was reopened as of 5:50 a.m.

The driver of the truck was not injured, according to police.
