New Route 168 intersection with Benigno Boulevard opened in final configuration in Bellmawr

(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced that the newly reconfigured Route 168/Benigno Boulevard intersection has been opened in full this past weekend in Bellmawr Borough, Camden County.

NJDOT’s contractor, Mount Construction Co., has widened Benigno Boulevard to include two new dedicated turn-lanes – a left-turn lane for traffic headed to Route 168 northbound and a dedicated right-turn lane for traffic headed to Route 168 southbound and the New Jersey Turnpike. Previously, Benigno Boulevard featured only one travel lane at the intersection, which led to traffic backups for motorists headed to Route 168 during peak travel periods. A new traffic signal was installed to accommodate the new turn movements at the intersection. New sidewalks and curbing have been provided and drainage improvements were made throughout the intersection.

The project, which began preliminary work and utility relocations in fall 2011, is expected to be complete by early-summer 2013.

Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website for construction updates and real-time travel information.
