(Lindenwold, NJ) – Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, has been notified by the Public Service Electric & Gas Company (PSE&G) that crews will be repairing two gas leaks on Kaighn Avenue in Camden next week. The repairs will interrupt traffic at different locations between Monday, Sept. 9, and Thursday, Sept. 12.
“These are separate projects that will require similar closures and detours in order to accommodate crews and equipment,” Shin Angulo said. “Motorists should be sure to stay apprised of when crews will be moving from one location to the other and be aware of how this will impact nearby routes and traffic. When driving in or around the construction area, always remain vigilant of sudden stops and shifting traffic patterns, as well as crews, vehicles, or equipment that may end up in the roadway.”
On Monday, Sept. 9, and Tuesday, Sept. 10, crews will be repairing the first leak at 252 Kaighn Avenue. This repair will necessitate a full closure of the roadway between South 2nd and South 3rd Streets. Motorists will be directed along a posted detour utilizing South 2nd, South 3rd, and Walnut Streets to circumvent the area.
On Wednesday, Sept. 11, and Thursday, Sept. 12, crews will be repairing the second leak at 1368 Kaighn Avenue. This repair will necessitate a full closure of the roadway between Haddon Avenue and Park Boulevard. Motorists will be directed along a posted detour utilizing Princess, Haddon, and Kenwood Avenues to circumvent the area.
All repairs will take place between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. The project is expected to be completed by the end of work hours on Thursday, Sept. 12. Scheduling and project timing is dependent on weather and may be adjusted due to unforeseen events.
