(Lindenwold, NJ) – Freeholder Susan Shin-Angulo was notified today by NJ Transit that River Road in Pennsauken will experience unscheduled closures in the next two weeks. The closures are the result of repairs to the elevated
rail crossing which was damaged last week when a garbage container truck struck the bridge.
“Motorists driving through the area can expect more traffic than usual, sudden stops and detours while machinery and materials are brought in for crews working on the tracks,” said Shin Angulo, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “Until these repairs are completed, motorists should try to plan around the affected route, and take extra caution when driving through the construction area is a must.”
During the repairs, NJ TRANSIT’s Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL) service will remain suspended for two weeks between Philadelphia and Cherry Hill. Substitute bus service will continue to operate between Cherry Hill and Philadelphia during this time. Additionally, PATCO, River Line light rail and all NJ TRANSIT South Jersey bus routes will continue to cross-honor ACRL tickets and passes throughout the repair efforts.
The repairs are expected to last two weeks, but could take longer if faced with unfavorable weather conditions. Commuters utilizing public transportation can monitor www.njtransit.com for updates.
