(Lindenwold, NJ)- PSE&G will be investigating a potential small gas leak on Cove Road in Merchantville on Tuesday, Feb. 1. There will be a partial road closure northbound on Cove Road between Park Avenue and Rudderow Avenue for the duration of the work period.


“It’s crucial that crews investigate this matter to ensure our utility infrastructure has not been compromised or in need of repair,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “Because this work will happen throughout peak commuting hours, motorists should plan ahead and give themselves plenty of time to get to their destination. And remember to be alert whenever driving through construction areas.”


Work hours will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow.
