(Lindenwold, NJ) – Due to strong wind and rain from the remnants of Hurricane Ian on Monday morning, a large tree fell into the road on Route 561 between the Uxbridge Condominium Complex and the Winner Ford dealership just before brace road. The tree is caught in electrical power lines and brought down a telephone pole.

PSE&G and Verizon are both on site waiting for new telephone pole to be delivered while decommissioning powerlines from the fallen tree.


“The road will be closed for an extended period and based on that, motorists should find an alternate route,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Department of Public Works.
