Portion of White Horse Pike Remains Closed for Utility Work
Single lanes of the highway will be closed overnight for the rest of the week as a gas-main installation project continues.
Camden County submitted the following news release:
The Camden County Department of Public Works has been notified that an ongoing gas main installation project underneath Route 30 (White Horse Pike) is impacting the state highway this week—requiring single-lane closures—in Camden County.
South Jersey Gas is currently 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.
“If you need to travel on the White Horse Pike during these times, you should give yourself extra time to reach your destination,” said Freeholder Leonard. “Motorists should be aware of this construction and be alert of the lane closures that will be in place.”
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 entire project should be completed by July.
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, www.511nj.org, for construction updates and real-time travel information.
