Construction Activity

The New Jersey Department of Transportation's (NJDOT) Route 70, Route 38 to Cooper Avenue project has completed the Final Design phase of NJDOT’s Capital Project Delivery Process. Construction is anticipated to begin in September 2021 and be completed by August 2026.

The project will mill, resurface, and reconstruct 8.8 miles of deteriorated pavement along Route 70 from Route 38 (MP 0.00) to Cooper Avenue (MP 8.80) and all of NJDOT’s jughandles within those project limits. It will upgrade all traffic signals to adaptive technology, upgrade intersections to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), address drainage issues, and improve pedestrian safety along the corridor.

This page will be updated throughout the construction phase with information regarding construction activity.
