Route 295 traffic shift scheduled for this weekend
(Trenton) - The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced a traffic shift on Route 295 from Route 168 in Mount Ephraim to Route 561 in Cherry Hill, Camden County for the ongoing resurfacing project.
Starting Friday, April 16 at 9 p.m., I-295 northbound will be reduced to two lanes, with motorists using the northbound express lane on the southbound side of the roadway and one local lane shifted to the right side of I-295 northbound. This pattern will remain over the weekend until Monday, April 19 at 6 a.m. There will also be periodic, temporary closures of the ramps to I-295 northbound to implement the shift.
Once the traffic is shifted, I-295 northbound will maintain three lanes of traffic using the existing northbound express lane on the southbound side of the roadway and the right lane and shoulder. The new work zone will be located in the left and center local lanes.
NJDOT is rehabilitating I-295 in Barrington, Bellmawr, Cherry Hill, Haddon Heights, Haddonfield, Lawnside and Tavistock in Camden County and West Deptford and Westville in Gloucester County. The project also includes replacing five I-295 bridge decks.
Construction is scheduled for completion in summer 2012.
