LOGAN TWP. – A traffic detour has been set up on Route 130, just below Center Square Road in Logan Township because work has begun to rehabilitate the bridge over Oldmans Creek. This section of road connects Logan Township in Gloucester County to Oldmans Township in Salem County.
The $3.38 million state-funded project will remove counterweights and wire ropes to convert the bridge from a moveable bridge to a fixed span and is expected to be completed by spring 2016. Pedestrian access across the bridge will be temporarily unavailable during construction.
Route 130 northbound: Traffic will be directed to turn right onto CR 642/Porcupine Road. From Porcupine Road, traffic will continue onto CR 643/Straughns Mill Road. From Straughns Mill Road, traffic will use I-295 northbound. From I-295 northbound, traffic will exit onto CR 620/Center Square Road. From Center Square Road, traffic will turn right back onto Route 130 northbound.
Route 130 southbound: Traffic will be directed to turn left onto CR 620/Center Square Road. From Center Square Road, traffic will use I-295 southbound. From I-295 southbound, traffic will exit onto CR 643/Straughns Mill Road. From Straughns Mill Road, traffic will continue onto CR 642/Porcupine Road. From Porcupine Road, traffic will turn left back onto Route 130 southbound.
Variable message signs and lane closure signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of all traffic pattern changes associated with the deck replacement project. Throughout the project, NJDOT will provide information before upcoming road closures.
