Route 72 East in Stafford Township will be shut overnight as the state Section of Transportation contractor completes drainage repairs as component of the $312 million federally funded Causeway project.
Commencing at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Might 14 right up until 8 a.m. Saturday, May 15, C.J. Hesse Inc., which is dealing with the ultimate phase of the Causeway project, is scheduled to shut Route 72 eastbound at the Marsha Drive intersection.
Motorists traveling towards Extended Seashore Island after 6:30 p.m. will be directed to take the ramp towards Marsha Travel, comply with the exit and at the prevent signal turn remaining on to Jennifer Push. At the close of Jennifer Push, motorists will be directed to choose a still left onto Morris Boulevard, which will take them again to Route 72 East marginally higher than the intersection, according to state transportation officials.
Function on the Route 72/Manahawkin Bay Bridge job commenced in 2013. This last design deal is designed to make improvements to safety and reduce congestion in Stafford at the Marsha Push/Route 72 intersection and in Ship Base on Extended Seaside Island. In Stafford, Marsha Travel will be widened to offer double left-turn lanes on to Route 72, and a 3rd lane will be added on Route 72 in both of those instructions close to the intersection.
The specific timing of the get the job done is subject matter to improve due to weather conditions or other elements.
