Road Work in Berlin Road Area and on Kresson Road to Cause Significant Delays Beginning Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Please take note of the following road work with traffic impact:

  • Berlin Road (Rt 561) will be down to ONE LANE EACH DIRECTION between Morris Drive and Cranford Road from 7 am to 4 pm daily, Wednesday 3/22 through Monday 3/27 for emergency repairs to stormwater inlets. One lane will be closed at a time but the work will alternate between one closed lane southbound and one closed lane northbound. Two-way traffic will be maintained the entire time and police will be on location.
  • Kresson Road will be CLOSED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS between Haddonfield-Berlin Road and Brace Road from 9 am to 3 pm on Monday 3/27 (and possibly Tuesday 3/28) for sewer work resulting in road openings. Detour routes will be posted and police will be on location at the closure points. Willard Ave and Moore Ave will be open to local traffic only, with no connection to Kresson Road.

Both of these events will contribute to substantial delays in these areas, which are subject to normally heavy traffic conditions.

Please plan alternate routes where possible, and expect delays if travel through these areas is necessary.
