One lane on Route 42 northbound will be closed overnight this week Monday, September 26 through Thursday, September 29 from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. between Black Horse Pike/Route 168/Atlantic City Expressway in Washington Township and Route 55 in Deptford, Gloucester County.
The lane will be closed for survey work in preparation of an upcoming full-depth paving repair project on Route 42.
NJDOT will provide notice prior to any future closures. At least one lane of traffic will be maintained overnight during survey work.
Motorists are advised to slow down, expect delays and use caution while driving through the work zone.
This work is part of a $13.6 million federally-funded project that will preserve approximately six miles of pavement using High-Performance Thin Overlay (HPTO) on Route 42 between Black Horse Pike/Route 168/Atlantic City Expressway in Washington, Gloucester County through Gloucester Township, Camden County to Route 55 in Deptford.
This project includes paving all ramps within the project limits and will further improve driving conditions on Route 42 by adding rumble strips, ADA-compliant curb ramps, and new signage to the roadway.
This project is expected to be completed in fall 2023.
