Traffic Headaches Continue for Egg Harbor, Hamilton Townships, NJ
If you live in or travel through Egg Harbor Township, Monday is not going to be fun.
Along with all the other ongoing projects dotted around the township, Ocean Heights Avenue will be closed near the EHT and Somers Point Border.
Egg Harbor Township Police say that on Monday from 9 am - 3 pm, Ocean Heights Avenue will be closed beneath the Garden State Parkway overpass - where work has been ongoing for the last year. Police say the purpose is for milling and paving work.
Here is the expected detour, according to police:
"Traffic traveling from Somers Pt to EHT will be diverted down Blackman Rd to Steelmanville Rd. Traffic traveling from EHT to Somers Pt will be diverted down Steelmanville Rd to Blackman Rd."
If possible, it's probably best to find an alternate route.
In the meantime, here's an update on New York Avenue, which has been closed for most of the year between Reega Avenue and Route 40 in Hamilton Township.
According to Atlantic County officials, it's hoped that the road will be open by the end of the year - or at least that's what the latest estimate is at this time.
A prefabricated bridge had to be replaced over Gravelly Run, following a safety emergency. Officials say it would normally take three years for such a project, from design to completion. Because it was an unexpected emergency, they were able to move the process along. The bridge and the section of the roadway have been closed to traffic since February.
