    The first weekday test of the closed, northbound Pulaski Skyway wasn't much different from any other Monday. An estimated 40,000 motorists who take the Skyway toward Jersey City and Manhattan every day are now forced to find an alternate route. All northbound lanes were closed on Saturday for two-years during a rehabilitation project on the 82 year old span.
