NJDOT begins Camden County resurfacing project
Skid-resistant pavement to increase safety on Route 295 and Route 30 in Bellmawr, Clementon and Lindenwold
(Trenton) Commissioner Kris Kolluri today announced that the New Jersey Department of Transportation on March 26 will begin a $3 million project to replace sections of Route 295 and Route 30 in Camden County with skid-resistant pavement.
“NJDOT’s Route 295 and Route 30 resurfacing project will improve skid resistance and upgrade safety, especially during wet weather,” said Commissioner Kolluri. “NJDOT will provide a safer, smoother roadway while working during off-peak hours to minimize the impact upon motorists.”
The project will consist of four stages. The schedule is subject to change due to the weather restrictions on the placement of the specialized skid-resistant pavement, which exhibits exceptional rut resistance and lowers tire noise on the roadway.
From March 26 to April 9, NJDOT will install heavy-duty safety shielding underneath the overpass that carries I-295 traffic over Route 42 in Bellmawr. Single and double nighttime lane closings will occur on Route 42 northbound and southbound in the vicinity of the I-295 overpass in Bellmawr.
From April 9 to May 6, NJDOT will repair the bridge decks on I-295 northbound over Route 42. Nighttime single lane closings will be required from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Monday to Thursday; 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. on Friday evenings and 9 p.m. on Saturday evenings.
From May 7 to May 17, NJDOT will resurface and install rumble strips on one mile of I-295 northbound and southbound in the vicinity of Route 42. Nighttime single lane closures from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Monday to Thursday, 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. on Friday evenings and 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturdays will be required.
From May 17 to May 30, NJDOT will resurface and stripe Route 30 in Lindenwold and Clementon. Nighttime double lane closures will occur from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Sunday.
NJDOT expects minimal traffic impacts for the duration of the lane closures. State Police will be present to ensure motorist and worker safety at the construction site. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.njcommuter.com for project and traffic updates.
