(Trenton)(July 1, 2020)-- – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced overnight lane closures on Route 41/Kings Highway as a pavement preservation project begins between Route 70 in Cherry Hill, Camden County and South Lenola Drive in Maple Shade, Burlington County.
Beginning at 8 p.m., Wednesday, July 1 until 6 a.m., the next day, and continuing nightly Monday through Friday for approximately eight weeks, excluding holidays, NJDOT’s contractor, Asphalt Paving Systems is scheduled to close lanes to perform road repairs, remove reflectors and rumble strips. This work is in preparation for paving and applying slurry seal to Route 41 in both directions, as well as to several ramps within the project limits.
Later in the project, there will be overnight ramp closures with detours at nine locations. NJDOT will provide more information in advance of any closures and detours.
The $2 million federally-funded project will repair and preserve the pavement to improve safety and enhance ride quality for motorists and reduce future maintenance costs on approximately three miles of Route 41, in both directions, between Route 70 in Cherry Hill, Camden County and South Lenola Drive in Maple Shade, Burlington County. Work includes asphalt repairs, installation of new rumble strips and reflectors, upgrading and replacing inlet grates and curbs as needed.
Variable Message Signs are being used to provide advance notification of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work. NJDOT will provide more information before any lane closures are scheduled. The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.
