(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced Route 41/Kings Highway will have overnight lane and ramp closures starting tonight as the pavement preservation project between Route 70 in Cherry Hill, Camden County, and South Lenola Drive in Maple Shade, Burlington County advances.
Beginning at 8 p.m. tonight, Monday, August 10 until 6 a.m. the next day and continuing each night through Wednesday, August 12, NJDOT’s contractor, Asphalt Paving Systems, is scheduled to remove pavement reflectors on Route 41 in both directions using a moving operation between Route 70 in Cherry Hill and South Lenola Drive in Maple Shade. Motorists should use caution and slow down through the area.
There will be overnight single lane and ramp closures from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. the next day on Thursday, August 13, Friday, August 14, and Sunday, August 16 for milling, paving and slurry seal application. One lane of traffic will be maintained at all times.
