(Lindenwold, NJ) – Freeholder Al Dyer has been notified by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) that the I-76 eastbound exit 1B ramp to I-295 northbound and two lanes on I-76 eastbound will be closed overnight for concrete repairs.
“Residents should be aware that in addition to these overnight closures, the ongoing construction will continue to impact their commute for the duration of the project,” said Freeholder Dyer, 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. tonight, Wednesday, December 23 until 6 a.m. tomorrow, December 24, NJDOT is scheduled to close and detour the I-76 eastbound Exit 1B ramp to I-295 northbound. In addition, the two right lanes on I-76 eastbound near the ramp are scheduled to be closed, with three lanes of traffic maintained overnight. These closures will allow the contractor to complete concrete repairs on the tunnel leading to I-295 northbound. The following detour will be in place overnight:
I-76 eastbound to I-295 northbound detour
- Motorists traveling on I-76 eastbound wishing to take I-295 northbound will be directed to continue on I-76 eastbound
- Stay to the left and take Exit 1A to I-295 southbound
- Take I-295 southbound to Exit 25A/Route 47
- Take the exit to I-295 northbound
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.
