Several locations for the latest projects involve around-the-clock work. Please plan accordingly for delays.

Haddonfield Road, southbound lanes:

Several locations along the north end of Haddonfield Road will be undergoing emergency gas line repairs which will result in multiple lane closures, many around the clock for several days. The work will not extend into weekends, and any road openings will be closed up by work crews prior to temporarily re-opening the road for weekend travel. The following is tentatively scheduled by PSE&G:

  • Thursday 11/12/2015, between Dudley Ave & Church Road down to one lane; 7 am start, expected duration is 3 days of 24/7 work rotation;
  • Tuesday 11/17/2015, between Dudley Ave & Princeton Ave down to one lane; 7 am start, expected duration is one 24-hour shift;
  • Wednesday 11/18/2015, between Yale Ave (new WaWa) and Church Rd down to one lane in each direction, the entire southbound half of the road will be closed and both directions will be flowing one lane in each direction on the northbound side; 8am start, expected duration is 3 days of 24/7 work rotation.

  • Cropwell Road, various portions atop and along the County bridge near North Branch Ave:

    Beginning Monday 11/16/2015 and lasting approximately three weeks, work hours 7 am to 3:30 pm; Camden County Highway Improvement project making repairs to the County bridge in the area of the Little Servant Sisters driveway. The road will be open during this entire project, but there will be some isolated times when traffic may be one-lane alternating-directions with police on location. Asphalt Paving Systems will notify the Beck School when the project approaches various phases affecting school and bus traffic.

    South Coles Avenue north of the Church Road Circle will be closed headed to and from Maple Shade, now through early January for complete rehabilitation. The closures will mostly be daytime 7 am through 5 pm, with intermittent overnight closures as well. Detours to go between Cherry Hill and Maple Shade will be:

    Route 38 east to Mill Road to Forked Landing Road to Main St (Route 537);

    Route 38 east to Kings Highway (Rt 41) to Rt 73 to Main St (Route 537);
