(Lindenwold, NJ) – Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, has been notified by the Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) that crews will be repairing a gas main on Chapel Avenue in Merchantville, on Monday, Aug. 19. While crews are at work, Chapel Avenue will be closed to all traffic between Clayton Avenue and Stanley Street.

“As with any road closure, the shifted traffic created by the detour may add congestion to nearby roadways,” Shin Angulo said. “When near the construction zone, motorists should expect sudden stops, shifting traffic patterns, and other changing conditions in the area surrounding construction. Additionally, you should be extra cautious and attentive when driving near construction crews and vehicles.”

On Monday, Aug. 19, crews will close the affected stretch of roadway from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Motorists will be directed along a posted detour route to circumvent the affected area.                                                                                                                            

The project is expected to be completed by the end of work hours on Monday, Aug. 19. Scheduling and project timing is dependent on weather and may be adjusted due to unforeseen events.
