CNB TRAFFIC ALERT: Route 30 eastbound closed to westbound lanes for pavement project in Atlantic County


One lane of traffic to be maintained in each direction during closures


(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced a portion of Route 30 eastbound was closed today with traffic shifted to the westbound lanes as a pavement repair project begins on Route 30 in Camden and Atlantic Counties. 

Earlier today, Wednesday, February 23, NJDOT’s contractor, A.E. Stone., closed Route 30 eastbound between Fleming Pike and Spring Road in Winslow and shifted one lane of eastbound traffic onto the westbound side of the roadway. Route 30 normally carries two lanes of traffic in each direction. The closures are necessary to complete drainage work. When the work is completed on the eastbound side of the road, the westbound side of the road will be closed with traffic shifted onto the eastbound side. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction through May 14 when two lanes of traffic in each direction will be restored for the summer.

In addition, there will be temporary lane closures for intersection improvements through the spring. Work is expected to begin at the intersection with Atco Avenue in Waterford, Camden County and progress toward Route 206 in Hammonton, Atlantic County. 

The $11.2 million state-funded project will repair 10 miles of pavement on Route 30 from Atco Avenue in Waterford, Camden County to Route 206 in Hammonton, Atlantic County. The project will advance in stages, beginning with drainage work in Winslow. Paving is expected to take place in the spring 2023. In addition to pavement repairs, the project includes traffic signal upgrades, ADA-compliant ramps, and guiderail upgrades. The project is expected to be completed in fall 2023.

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 for construction updates and real-time travel information. For NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NewJerseyDOT and our Facebook page.
