Route 70 maintenance improvement project
begins next week
Scheduled lane closures should be expected


(Trenton) -New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced the start of a maintenance project to improve the condition of Route 70 in both directions from mile post 0.0 to mile post 7.6 in the Cherry Hill area.

On Monday, June 20, NJDOT contractor, Joseph Defino Trucking Co., will begin erecting signs informing the public of the upcoming work. Construction is expected to begin the following week at Haddonfield Road and advance toward the Turnpike overpass on Route 70. The work will include milling and paving the road surface and concrete. Lane closures will be limited to off peak times to decrease the impact on the motoring public.

This $9 million dollar project is divided into two contracts. This first contract will address mile post 2.55 to mile post 5.33 and is expected to complete in early 2017. The second contract addresses mile post 0.00 to mile post 2.55 and mile post 5.33 to mile post 7.6 and is expected to begin later this month and complete next fall. Work will occur on both sides of Route 70 simultaneously when possible.

This work will address some of the worst road surface in the state and significantly improve driving conditions until a much larger, a $50 million project begins in 2019 that will overhaul this entire stretch of Route 70. The work that begins this week will help reduce the impact of the future project.

Variable message signs and lane closure signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the deck replacement project. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road closures.

The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weatheror other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
