Lower Bank Bridge over the Mullica River, connecting the Village of Lower Bank in Washington Township to Egg Harbor City in Atlantic County, was closed this morning Friday April 5th to motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians.
The closure is required in order to investigate a sinkhole in the paved area of the approach roadway, determine the extent of permanent repairs to be made, and to begin those repairs.
The roadway will remain closed until permanent repairs can be made. An estimated timeframe for the duration of the closure is not yet available.
Motorists are advised to use Batsto-Bridgeport Road (CR542) west to Green Bank-Batsto Road (CR563) south and access the Green Bank Bridge.
