New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced traffic shifts on Route 9 for the start of a sidewalk replacement project in Northfield, Atlantic County.
Beginning Monday, March 14 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and continuing weekdays until late fall 2016, NJDOT’s contractor, Lexa Concrete, LLC. is scheduled to shift alternating lanes along Route 9 in both directions, between Revere Avenue and Northfield Avenue in Northfield, Atlantic County. Construction signs and concrete barriers will be installed before work on the sidewalk begins. One travel lane in each direction will be maintained during construction to minimize the impact on motorists. There may be additional evening work at times that require lane closures. Shoulder closures, without lane closures will be allowed at any time with no restrictions. Access to all properties will be maintained at all times.
The Route 9 Northfield Sidewalk Replacement Project in Atlantic County is a $1 million federally-funded project that is expected to be completed by late fall 2016. In addition to filling in the gaps between the existing sidewalk, the project also will improve the Zion Road intersection by creating a separate right-hand turn onto Route 9. Additional project improvements include installing handicap ramps, pedestrian push-button signals, drainage modifications, and landscaping.
Route 9 in Northfield is designated a “summer route” by NJDOT, and is subject to modified lane closure hours between May 15 and September 15. Between these summer dates, alternating single lane closures will be allowed Monday through Thursday, 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. excluding holidays.
Variable message signs and construction signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the sidewalk replacement project.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.

New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced shoulder lane closures on Route 206 for the start of a construction project replacing two bridges in Hammonton, Atlantic County.
Beginning at 7 a.m. Wednesday, February 10, and continuing until project completion, NJDOT's contractor Midatlantic Construction, LLC. is scheduled to shift traffic on Route 206 for utility work and to prepare the location for the demolition of two structurally deficient bridges; the Clarks Creek Bridge and the Sleepers Brook Bridge. The majority of the bridge replacement work will be performed in the evening to minimalize any inconvenience to motorists.
The $5.2 million federal and state-funded project will replace the two bridges spanning over Clarks Creek and Sleepers Brook with new 40.5 feet wide precast concrete culverts and parapets at each location. There will also be roadway improvements on each of the bridge approaches. The project will consist of three stages. The first stage of the project will close the shoulder lanes only, allowing one lane of traffic in each direction. The second stage will require alternating traffic utilizing temporary traffic signals. The third and final stage will perform milling and resurfacing of the roadway. The project is expected to be completed by spring 2017.
Variable message signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the bridge replacement project. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road closures.
