County Highway Division to Resurface Roads in Woolwich & East Greenwich

Gloucester County Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney and Freeholder Deputy Director Bob Damminger announced today that two road resurfacing projects will soon get underway on Paulsboro Swedesboro Road in Woolwich and on Tomlin Station Road in East Greenwich.

On or about July 26, 2010 Gloucester County will begin the resurfacing of Paulsboro Swedesboro Road (CR 653) in Woolwich Township from Kings Highway (CR 551) to State Highway 322.  And, on or about August 2, 2010 the county will begin resurfacing Tomlin Station Road (CR 607)  in East Greenwich between Kings Highway (CR 551) and Wolfert Station Road (CR 664).

Both roadways will remain open during construction. Northbound and Southbound traffic along the roads will be maintained by way of lane shifts or alternating traffic during the various stages of construction. Residents shall have access to their driveways at all times. Driveway aprons within the project limits will be maintained by the County's paving crew during construction.

Both projects should be completed within a week of their start dates.

The resurfacing projects will consist of milling 2 inches of the existing asphalt and overlaying the roadway with 2 inches of new asphalt surface course. Wheel ruts and other pavement distortions will be removed by this pavement overlay. Existing inlet grates not meeting NJDOT standards will be replaced with new bicycle safety grates. The inlet openings not meeting NJ Storm Water Management Guidelines will be replaced or retrofitted. Traffic striping will also be replaced.

Motorists are asked for their cooperation and patience during these projects.
