Beginning Monday, July 31, Chapel Avenue westbound will be closed to all traffic at various locations between State Street and the Merchantville Circle from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
This closure will allow for the installation of a new 8-inch water along the shoulder by the Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission.
The road will reopen in both directions until 5 p.m. daily. Eastbound traffic will remain uninterrupted 24/7.
The project is expected to take about 18 weeks to complete. Closure points and detours may change as work progresses.
The Township and Cherry Hill Police Department will make every effort to update residents and motorists on the latest details. As always, please use caution when traveling through a work zone.
New Jersey Transit has issued a service advisory for customers who utilize a bus route within this work zone. It can be viewed by clicking here.
