(Trenton) - The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced a new traffic pattern for Route 295 northbound in Gloucester County starting Saturday, March 20 and lasting for several months in connection with a resurfacing project.

Traffic on the two northbound local lanes will be shifted to the right lane and shoulder in the area of Westville Borough. To accommodate this shift, NJDOT will temporarily detour traffic and close ramps from milepost 24.56 to milepost 26.40.

From 9 p.m. Friday, March 19, to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 20, NJDOT will close the two entrance ramps from Route 47 to I-295 northbound, detour Route 47 northbound traffic to the north of Deptford Avenue and adjust the detour route for Broadway (CR 551) to I-295 northbound.

Motorists on Route 47 northbound will be detoured to Deptford Avenue (CR 646) to Tacoma Boulevard (CR 644) to Evergreen Avenue (CR 553) to Park Avenue to Route 45 (North Broad Street) and take the ramp for
I-295 northbound.

• Route 47 northbound traffic to the north of Deptford Avenue (CR 646)
Traffic will continue on Route 47 northbound to East Olive Street to Broadway (CR 551) to Park Avenue to Route 45 (North Broad Street) and take the ramp for I-295 northbound.

I-295 northbound motorists will also encounter detours at the entrance/exit ramps with Route 30 for two consecutive weekends in the area of Haddon Heights, Camden County. The ramp to Route 30 eastbound will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday, March 19 to 6 a.m. Monday, March 22. Motorists will continue on I-295 northbound to Exit 32 for Haddonfield-Berlin Road using the interchange to make a U-turn to I-295 southbound to Exit 29 for Copley Road to Route 30.
