UPCOMING COUNTY ROADWAY / BRIDGE PROJECTS
Construction of Ellis Mill Road/Route US 322 Connector Road, CR 641 SPUR in the Township of Harrison and Borough of Glassboro.
On December 4, 2019 the County of Gloucester began construction on the first phase of a new roadway between US Route 322, Mullica Hill Road and County Route 641, Ellis Mill Road in the Township of Harrison and the Borough of Glassboro. The new County roadway, County Route 641 SPUR will be an extension of the existing roadway at the new Inspira Hospital site in Harrison Township near the Route 55 interchange, and will connect to Dr. Leo McCabe Boulevard, formerly known as Acorn Drive in the Borough of Glassboro. The first phase of the project will extend the portion of existing roadway by the hospital to an area along Route 55 to the Harrison Township/Glassboro Border. No access will be available through to the Borough of Glassboro's existing public streets in the first phase of the project and will not directly impact any existing residences and businesses other than Inspira Hospital and Rowan University's athletic fields. A future phase will make the connection to Dr. Leo McCabe Blvd. (Acorn) and Ellis Mill Road. The contractor for the project is R.E. Pierson Construction and will be completed in approximately 7 months, weather permitting.
