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.

Work will begin on/about Feb 28 and is anticipated being completed in early Sept 2022

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.
