Gloucester County Bridge Rehabilitation Project

The County of Gloucester has contracted Pierson Construction, Inc. to perform bridge improvements on various bridges throughout the County:

On or about September 6, 2022, this work will begin on the Malaga Park Drive Bridge over Malaga Branch adjacent to Malaga Lake. The road is now open, but periodic daytime closures will be utilized to complete the remaining work.  During the daytime closures, the road will be closed at the bridge but will allow school buses and emergency vehicles through the work zone.  All other traffic shall follow the posted detour.  Southbound traffic will be detoured to continue south on State Route 47 Delsea Drive, to a left onto State Route 40 Harding Highway ending at the southern end of (CR 615) Malaga Park Drive in Franklin Township.  The northbound traffic will be detoured to remain on State Route 40 Harding Highway, to a left onto State Route 47 Delsea Drive north ending at the northern end of (CR 615) Malaga Park Drive.  These detours will occur between 7 am and 4 pm.  All residents and local businesses will have access to their driveways at all times. Storm Pipe cleaning and lining will be completed in February, 2023, weather permitting.  This work will be done under a daytime detour but will be opened at the end of the work day. 

On or about October 1, 2022, work began on the CR 653 Billingsport Road Bridge over Conrail in Paulsboro.  Concrete repairs are being performed on the structure that will not affect the daily traffic on the road.  Some shoulder closures are expected.  This work is on hold until March, 2023 due to weather constraints.   

On or about November 7, 2022, work began on the (US 322) Mullica Hill Road Bridge east of (CR 623) Clems Run Road in Harrison Township.  This work is being performed with a single directional detour for east bound traffic during working hours.  The detour will send eastbound traffic South onto (CR 623) Clems Run Road, to a left onto Griffin Road, returning back to (US 322) Mullica Hill Road east of the bridge.  Westbound traffic will not be detoured, but may be shifted in the work zone during the day.  The remainder of the concrete repairs to the underside of the bridge will be completed in the spring of 2023 as the weather permits. 

Repaupo Creek Levee Pump Station Project.

The County of Gloucester has contracted JPC to complete the Repaupo Creek Levee Pump Station Project. The project consists of placing large diameter high velocity pumps at the Flood Gate Road Sluice and the White Sluice Gates. The high river levels before, during and after the storm events have kept the sluice gates located at Floodgate Road, the White Sluice Race, and the Sand Ditch closed, preventing the area creeks from draining to the Delaware River. This has caused  flooding problems in Greenwich Township, specifically the neighborhoods adjacent to South Poplar Street, Tomlin Station Road, Willow Drive and Floodgate Road. These pump stations will give the ability to monitor creek elevations and begin pumping well in advance of a known storm event. The addition of these pump stations will create the ability to  reduce the flooding in the affected neighborhoods.

Gloucester County Traffic Sign Replacement Project

The County of Gloucester has contracted LC Equipment to perform this Countywide project. This will consist of the furnishing, installation and replacement of various signs including but not limited to advanced warning, traffic signal mast arm, school and regulatory signs. Also included are the installation of reflective U-Post inserts, flexible delineators, and mowing or trimming of vegetation as required to properly install the signs.
