(Lindenwold, NJ) – Freeholder Barbara Holcomb, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, has been informed by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) that there will be an overnight closure of the I-76 eastbound Exit 1B ramp to I-295 northbound, and the closure of two lanes on I-76 eastbound, tonight for concrete repairs.
“Overnight closures can still cause significant traffic delays and backups, so it is important for motorists to be aware of these closures and how they may impact their route,” Holcomb said. “Motorists should be aware that normal traffic patterns may be altered while this project is underway and plan accordingly. Additionally, always be extra cognizant of sudden stops and reduced speeds on the roadway when driving in or around the construction zone.”
Beginning at 9 p.m. tonight until 6 a.m. Friday morning, crews will 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 overnight detour will be in place:
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 for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
