Utility gas pipe installation to require lane closures along Route 30 in Camden County
(Trenton) - An ongoing gas main installation project underneath Route 30 (White Horse Pike) is scheduled to begin construction impacting the state highway this week - requiring single-lane closures - in Camden County.
South Jersey Gas will be upgrading their underground pipeline facilities running below Route 30 between Warwick Road and Brand Avenue through the boroughs of Magnolia, Somerdale, Stratford, Lindenwold and Clementon. The work is being accomplished with single-lane closures on Route 30 in both directions from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. One lane will be maintained on the highway in each direction at all times.
The utility contractor began construction in January, working along all associated side streets within the project limits. The project is now shifting to the second phase, running underneath Route 30 mainline.
The work is being performed under a regional Utility Permit allowing South Jersey Gas access to the state highway to make the necessary underground repairs. Traffic control personnel and signage will direct motorists around all work. The project is anticipated to be completed by the end of July.
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 for construction updates and real-time travel information.
