NJDOT to reopen Main Street Bridge over Route 73
Reconstructed bridge connecting Maple Shade and Moorestown completed ahead of schedule

(Trenton) - The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced that the reconstructed CR 537/Main Street bridge over Route 73 that connects Maple Shade and Moorestown will be reopened to traffic Thursday evening, June 30.

“The reconstructed bridge will provide decades of safe travel for motorists,” NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson said. “It’s great news for residents, businesses and motorists that we are reopening the bridge well ahead of schedule.”

The CR 537 bridge was closed to traffic on March 15 in connection with an ongoing $18 million project to increase safety and reduce congestion on and around a high-volume stretch of Route 73 in Burlington County.

NJDOT’s contractor, South State Inc., has completed work to replace the old, structurally deficient bridge deck about a month ahead of schedule.

NJDOT is constructing an additional travel lane in each direction from south of Fellowship Road/Fox Meadow Drive to CR-537 and realigning and widening the Route 73 and Fellowship Road/Fox Meadow Drive interchange to provide new dedicated turning lanes. The state-funded project is anticipated for completion in spring 2012.
