(Lindenwold, NJ) – Freeholder Barbara Holcomb has been notified by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) that the ramp from Route 90 eastbound/Betsy Ross Bridge to John Tipton Boulevard/Suckle Highway/Hylton Road will be closed and detoured as a concrete repair project advances in Pennsauken.
“Please plan an alternative route if your commute will be impacted by the ramp closure and be mindful that all traffic in the area will be congested due to the construction,” said Holcomb, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “Anytime a project requires a closure you can expect sudden stops, shifting traffic patterns, and other changing conditions.”
Beginning tonight, October 27, the Delaware River Port Authority will close and detour the ramp from Route 90 eastbound/Betsy Ross Bridge to John Tipton Boulevard/Suckle Highway/Hylton Road. This closure will allow the contractor to complete paving on the ramp. The following signed detour will be in place for approximately five weeks:
