Westbound traffic will be shifted onto newly-reconstructed roadway
(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced a traffic shift on Route 322 westbound as a roadway widening project advances in Logan Township, Gloucester County.
Beginning at 5 a.m. tomorrow, Friday, April 9, the developer’s contractor, R.E. Pierson Construction Co., is scheduled to shift Route 322 westbound traffic to the right onto the reconstructed original roadway beginning near the I-295 interchange in Logan Township. Motorists should expect brief slowdowns and delays while the shifts are taking place.
Route 322 eastbound traffic will remain on the new roadway, which was built parallel to the reconstructed lanes. This shift will allow the contractor to complete final paving and traffic signal installation. One lane will be maintained in each direction at all times.
The project is improving a 1.2 mile section of Route 322 between Route 130 and I-295 in Logan Township, Gloucester County. The original roadway featured one lane in each direction, with three foot shoulders. The new roadway will feature two lanes in each direction, with upgraded 12-foot shoulders. It will also upgrade traffic signals and improved access to local businesses. The project is anticipated to be complete in spring 2021.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information. For NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NewJerseyDOT and our Facebook page.
