Railroad-crossing repair to require closure
of Route 47 in Millville
(Trenton) - The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today announced a planned railroad crossing repair project will require the temporary closure of Route 47 in Millville City.
- Route 47 will be closed to traffic in both northbound and southbound directions from 7:00 a.m. on Friday, June 14 to Monday, June 17 at 7:00 p.m.. Motorists will be detoured using Foundry Street, N. High Street and Broad Street Road.
Access will be maintained to residential properties and businesses on either side of the rail line. If the work is completed earlier, the roadways will be reopened accordingly.
In order to provide a safer and smoother railroad crossing the freight rail contractor will replace the existing crossing with a new concrete freight rail crossing and repave the asphalt approaches. This project is included within NJDOT’s railroad grade-crossing safety program which repairs, upgrades or removes approximately 30 crossings each year, statewide.
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.
