(Lindenwold, NJ) – Freeholder Susan Shin has been informed by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) of overnight lane and ramp closures on Route 42 southbound as the Bridges over Timber Creek and Lower Landing Road project advances.

“Residents should be aware that in addition to these lane and ramp closures, the ongoing construction will continue to impact their commute for the duration of the project,” said Freeholder Shin Angulo, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works.  “When this project is completed, it will alleviate much of the traffic congestion currently experienced on a daily basis. It will be a monumental change for this highway interchange creating a substantial upgrade to the current configuration.”

Beginning at 9 p.m., Saturday, March 16 until 6 a.m. Sunday, March 17, NJDOT will close the right and center lanes on Route 42 southbound, along with the ramp from Route 41 to Route 42 southbound. The closures are necessary to implement a traffic shift on Route 42 southbound to allow for the demolition and reconstruction of the bridge deck over Big Timber Creek and Lower Landing Road.

When Route 42 southbound reopens on Sunday morning, two lanes of traffic will be shifted to the left and the current left lane cross over onto the northbound side of Route 42 will remain in place. This configuration will be in place through the fall. Route 42 northbound will continue to have three lanes of travel open.

The following overnight ramp detours will be in place:

 Deptford Center Road to Route 42 southbound detour:

  • Motorists traveling on Deptford Center Road wishing to take Route 42 southbound will be directed to turn left onto Route 41 northbound
  • Take the ramp to Route 42 northbound
  • Take Route 42 northbound to Exit 14/Creek Road

  • Take Route 42 northbound to Exit 14/Creek Road
  • Turn left onto Edgewood Avenue

The $9.6 million federally-funded project, which began in September 2017 will demolish and replace the two bridge deck spans on the Route 42 Bridges over Timber Creek and Lower Landing Road and make repairs to the piers and abutments. The project has been designed in stages with the bridge deck replaced one side at a time to reduce the impact to motorists. Work will begin on the southbound bridge. The estimated completion date is fall 2020.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info or on the NJDOT Facebook page.
