Flood Update:
Detour for Route 70 in Burlington County announced

(Southhampton) New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner Jack Lettiere recently announced the temporary detour (map attached -pdf 220kb) for Route 70 in Burlington County.

The Route 70 Bridge, which carries the highway over the Friendship Creek at Holly Boulevard in Southhampton Township, Burlington County, collapsed yesterday due to the severe flooding.

The detour at Route 70 is the only remaining detour on a state highway caused by the recent flooding. Lettiere said that a temporary bridge will be installed on Route 70 in the next 7 to 10 days, at which time the detour route will no longer be necessary.

Until the temporary bridge is installed motorists are advised to take the following detour route:

Heading Eastbound on Route 70
Take Route 206 North at Red Lion Circle. Turn right on County Route 530 through Pemberton. Turn right onto County Route 646 (New Lisbon Road) to Four Mile Circle and back onto Route 70 East.

Heading Westbound on Route 70
Make right at Four Mile Circle to County Route 646 (New Lisbon Road). Turn left onto County Route 530 through Pemberton. Turn left onto 206 South. Make right onto Route 70 West at Red Lion Circle.

The detours in each direction are posted on the roads.
