On Monday, May 12, the New Jersey Department of Transportation began long-awaited road repairs along Brace Road in Cherry Hill.
The project, part of a larger $9.2 million NJDOT road resurfacing effort across three counties, calls for the reconstruction of curbing and the road surface along the entire 1.5-mile stretch of Brace Road, from Berlin Road to Route 70/Kings Highway.
“This is welcome news for Cherry Hill Township and the thousands of people who live and work on and near Brace Road, and who use it for travel every day,” Mayor Chuck Cahn said. “Brace Road was particularly hard-hit by this past winter; however, when construction is completed, this main thoroughfare will be a smoother and safer route for all those who use it.”
Weather-permitting, road work is scheduled to take place overnight, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday, to minimize the impact to motorists and businesses in the area. Shoulder closures and lane shifts will be in place where necessary.
Work includes base repairs and a full mill and overlay of the road surface. The installation of new curbing and ADA-compliant ramps has already been completed.
Mayor Cahn reminds residents to use caution and drive slowly when traveling through any construction zone. For more information on this and other road projects in town, contact the Cherry Hill Department of Engineering at (856) 424-3203.
