Regarding the ongoing Springdale Road work: left turns from Morris Drive onto Springdale northbound will be temporarily prohibited from 6 am through about 12 pm Friday 9/30/2016, pending weather cooperation. Should rain conditions preclude the short-term intersection work, this temporary restriction will be in effect during the same time frame on Monday 10/03/2016.

A message board has been placed by the contractor on Morris Drive advising motorists to use Heartwood Drive to Lark Lane to access Springdale northbound. Alternatively, Heartwood Drive may be taken out to Kresson Road, and a right turn onto Kresson Road to access Springdale Road northbound.

Beginning on or about Monday 10/24/2016, Springdale Road northbound will be CLOSED TO ALL TRAFFIC at Evesham Road, extending through the end of the work zone at Lark Lane/Wilderness Drive. Southbound traffic will use the northbound lane due to the southbound lane being impassable from construction. The intersections with Chateau Drive and Cunningham Lane will be closed during these work times. Morris Drive and Spring Road traffic will only be able to go south on Springdale -- no northbound travel will be possible. Local access to the ShopRite store and the Holly Ravine Shopping Center will be permitted. All other Springdale Rd/White Horse Rd northbound traffic will be detoured onto Evesham Road, to Cropwell Road or to Haddonfield-Berlin Road to get around the work area.

This detour will be in place from about 7am through about 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday, for about three weeks. Emergency vehicles responding to calls for service within the closed area will have northbound access via radio communication to police officers in the work zone. The restrictions will be lifted at the end of each daily work period and through the weekends. This altered traffic pattern should conclude the bulk of major road work on this project.

Route 70 is undergoing extensive surface repairs in order to make the roadway smoother and safer for all motorists, in advance of a major overhaul slated for sometime in 2019/2020. The 2016 repairs involve concrete work, milling and repaving of the road surfaces, and re-striping of lines. This resurfacing is being accomplished in two phases:

Phase 1 is from Haddonfield Road to the NJ Turnpike.

Phase 2 is from the Pennsauken Township line to Haddonfield Road, and then from the NJ Turnpike to the Evesham Township border.

The majority of this work is being performed overnight, but there will be occasional daytime operations which will affect traffic flow through Cherry Hill Township. At least one lane will be closed daily between the overnight hours of 9 pm and 6 am, seven days per week, for several months. There also will be occasional daytime closures in areas where there are more than two lanes, and these closures will be from 9 am through 3 pm each day. Advance warning will be provided by NJDOT through the use of electronic message boards and permanent signs. There will always be at least one lane of Route 70 maintained at all times, and the work will be performed in only one direction at a time.

These daily closures will continue through approximately November 2016. Advance notice will be provided if there are any changes and when the work interferes with any intersections where police are needed to assist with traffic control. Thank you for your patience and understanding as this long-term project begins. Please feel free to contact CHPS at (856) 429-5600, extension 4371, with any questions, as we have open lines of communication with the NJDOT Project Managers.
