Bridge painting contract to address structures
in southwestern New Jersey
Twelve individual bridges to be painted and sealed
in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties
(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced that a large-scale bridge painting contract which will address twelve individual bridge structures, on and spanning over multiple state highways, in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties is underway.
NJDOT’s painting contractor, Allied Painting, Inc., is performing the $4.8 million bridge painting work utilizing lane closures during off-peak hours on the state highways and local roadways at each location. Painting is an important element to maintaining the structural integrity of a bridge.
In addition to preparing and repainting the structural steel and metal surfaces of each bridge, the contractor will be water-proofing, caulking and lubricating the bearings. Minor deck joint, substructure concrete and steel structure repairs will be made at select locations as needed.
The twelve bridges being addressed in this contract are;
Route 130 over Rancocas Creek in Delran, Burlington County
Route 130 over Bridgeboro Street in Delran, Burlington County
Interstate 676 over Morgan Boulevard in Camden City, Camden County
Interstate 676 over Ferry Avenue in Camden City, Camden County
Interstate 676 over Van Hook Street in Camden City, Camden County
Champion Avenue over Route 130 in Collingswood, Camden County
Taunton Road over Route 73 in Winslow Township, Camden County

Interstate 295 southbound/Route 130 over Mantua Creek in Paulsboro, Gloucester County
Route 130 over Salem Canal in Pennsville, Salem County
The contractor is beginning the project at the Route 130 bridge over Rancocas Creek in Delran Township this week, utilizing some shoulder closures to install the necessary containment measures. The work will then progress to the other locations. NJDOT anticipates project completion in spring 2015.
