NJDOT to begin bridge repairs along I-295 in Cherry Hill

The New Jersey Department of Transportation is set to begin bridge maintenance work on stretches of Interstate 295 in Cherry Hill as part of a $2.5 million, federally funded project that is scheduled to run through summer 2015.

Locally, the affected bridges are located on Haddonfield-Berlin Road, Kresson Road and Chapel Avenue in Cherry Hill. Work is also scheduled on Devon Avenue in Haddon Heights, and Warwick Avenue and Lundy Street in Lawnside.

Work on Monday through Thursday will be restricted to off-peak hours, mid-morning to mid-afternoon, or overnight hours. Temporary single-lane closures will be allowed during overnight and off-peak hours at each location and shoulder closures will be allowed at any time.

All lanes will be maintained on I-295 during peak period commuting hours and on weekends.
To minimize the impact to summer travelers, there will be no lane closures on I-295 through Labor Day.

Work will not take place on more than two bridges concurrently. Flagging and alternating traffic will be necessary on occasion on local roads that provide only one travel lane in each direction.

To help extend the service life of these bridges, NJDOT will be performing different levels of bridge maintenance work at each location, including deck patching, curb repair, expansion joint reconstruction, header reconstruction, sidewalk repair, deck crack repairs, cleaning of drainage systems, power washing and application of a corrosion inhibitor. Work also will be performed below each structure, including repairs to abutment walls and piers, epoxy waterproofing, and lubrication of bearings.

Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website, www.511nj.org, for real-time travel information.
