FROM OPEN FARM FIELDS to an industrial site, the landscape at the intersection of Route 322/Locke Ave./Oak Grove Road is totally changed. The intersection was completely opened in mid-October. The intersection, that was originally a hazardous, angled intersection, has been redesigned and straightened, with turn lanes and a traffic light installed. The picture below was from the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of the Water and Sewer facility, held at the intersection in March 2021. Hopes are that the opening of the intersection will decrease the bumper to bumper gridlock traffic that had been happening on Kingsway Highway in the middle of Swedesboro.
