Regional roadway repair project
to shift operations to Route 47 in Millville
NJDOT to improve more than two miles of deteriorated pavement utilizing overnight detours and traffic shifts
(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced that an ongoing roadway repair project is scheduled to shift operations to Route 47 (Delsea Drive/2nd Street) this week in Millville, Cumberland County to address more than two miles of deteriorated pavement.
NJDOT’s maintenance contractor, South State Inc., will mill and repave Route 47 in both directions from north of Henderson Avenue (milepost 39.3) to just south of High Street (milepost 41.7). The contractor will be utilizing overnight southbound detours this week to complete the resurfacing work between Orange Street and Route 49. The resurfacing work north of Route 49 (up to High Street) will be accomplished using traffic shifts, utilizing the center-turn lane to maintain one travel lane in each direction.
This Route 47 resurfacing work - which is expected to take two weeks to complete - is included as part of an approximately $8.4 million regional maintenance resurfacing contract that began construction last fall. The contractor has already completed roadway repairs:
• Over a four-mile stretch Route 49 in both directions from Bridgeton City (milepost 27) through Fairfield Township to CR 634/Nabb Avenue in Millville City (milepost 31.4) in Cumberland County.
• On Route 45 from just south of Fenwick Creek (milepost 0.37) in Salem City to the vicinity of Mannington Creek (milepost 4.12) in Mannington Township.
• Route 49 in both directions from south of the I-295/Route 40 interchange (milepost 0.1) to east of S. Hook Road (milepost 5.7) in Pennsville Township in Salem County.
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 real-time travel information.
