(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the start of a railroad crossing rehabilitation project that will require a four-day closure and detour of Route 44/Crown Point Road between Jobstown Road/Church Street and River Lane in West Deptford, Gloucester County.
Beginning at 7 a.m., Tuesday, August 11 until 7 p.m., Friday, August 14, Route 44/Crown Point Road is scheduled to be closed and detoured in both directions at the railroad crossing between Jobstown Road/Church Street and River Lane.
