Construction of Ellis Mill Road/Route US 322 Connector Road, CR 641 SPUR in the Township of Harrison and Borough of Glassboro, Phase II.
The County of Gloucester has contracted South State Inc. to complete the final phase of construction of the Rowan/Ellis Mill Road/ US 322 Connector. The work shall include the extension of the recently constructed road section near Inspira Hospital to the existing roadway of Dr. Leo McCabe Boulevard.  The existing roadway section of Dr. Leo McCabe Boulevard will be milled and overlaid to Ellis Mill Road (CR641).

FUTURE PROJECTS CURRENTLY UNDER DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT 

Resurfacing and Safety Improvements to the Cross Keys By-Pass (CR689) and Hurffville-Cross Keys Road (CR654) in Washington Township
This project involves the resurfacing two non-contiguous roadway projects.  The first involves the section of  CR689 from Jenna Way to Route 42 along the Cross Keys By-Pass along with the contiguous portion Hurffville-Cross Keys Road (CR654) from the Cross Keys By-Pass to the original Cross Keys intersection at Tuckahoe Road (CR555).  The second involves a section of Hurffville-Cross Keys Road (CR654) from Fries Mill Road (CR655) to Egg Harbor Road (CR630).  These projects will be limited to the milling and resurfacing of the roadways within the existing pavement, restriping to current lane configurations and safety upgrades including ADA handicap ramp  improvements, new signing and raised pavement markers.   The project is designed to improve existing pavement conditions as part of a federal pavement preservation project.  The project is currently in design and is anticipated to be constructed in 2021.

Resurfacing and Safety Improvements of two sections of Fries Mill Road (CR655)
The first section is from State Route 42 through to Hurffville-Cross Keys Road (CR654) in Washington Township and the second section  is from the Gloucester County Multi-Purpose Trail (south of Route US 322) to Clayton-Williamstown Road (CR610) in the Township of Monroe and the Borough of Clayton.    This project will be limited to the milling and resurfacing of the roadways within the existing pavement limits, restriping to current lane configurations and safety upgrades including ADA handicap ramp improvements, new signing and raised pavement markers.   The project is designed to improve existing pavement conditions as part of a federal pavement preservation project.  The project is currently in design and is anticipated to be constructed in 2021.

 Extension of Mantua Boulevard (CR676) to the Rowan Fossil Park
This project involves the construction of a new access road to the Rowan Fossil Park by the extension of Mantua Boulevard (CR676) at Woodbury-Glassboro Road (CR553) through the future site of the Rowan Fossil Park to an existing frontage road along Route 55 in Mantua Township.  The project will create a safe alternative access for the new Rowan Fossil Park and facilitate the development of a museum and learning center on the former Inversand mining site behind the Lowes Shopping Center.  The project is currently in design and is planned for construction in 2021 through 2022.

 Route 55/Deptford Center Road Interchange Project
This concept development project in the Township of Deptford is in the early planning stages involving the extension of Deptford Center Road across the Route 55 interchange to link to Clements Bridge Road (CR544) by means of Greenbrier Court.  The project will evaluate the need for interchange improvements at Deptford Center Road by way of decreasing congestion by improving the Almonesson Road (CR621) intersection with Deptford Center Road, by converting the interchange to permit traffic movements to the west of Route 55, optimizing intersection designs and increasing ramp lengths along Route 55.  The project is being administered by Gloucester County through an agreement with the NJDOT.  As a concept development project, no construction timeline has been established.

 I-295, Interchange 10 Project
This concept development project involves the feasibility of widening the Center Square Road (CR620) overpass at Interchange 10 in Logan Township at the Pureland Industrial Complex.  The project will evaluate alternatives to widen the bridge, construct new ramps and coordinate the traffic signals at the interchange to address safety and congestion along Center Square Road (CR620) and the Interstate 295 ramping and adjoining through lanes.   As a concept development project, no construction timeline has been established.

 Bridgeton Pike, State Route 45 with Mount Royal Road (CR678) Intersection Project
The County of Gloucester through agreement and permit with the NJDOT is currently designing the widening of the Route 45/CR678 intersection in Mantua Township.  The project design will provide for the formal left turn lanes in all directions of travel with widening to increase the operating level of the intersection to acceptable limits.   The project also includes ADA handicap ramp improvements and cutting back the existing curbs to permit for truck movements.  The project is in design with anticipated construction in 2022 upon permit approval from the NJDOT.

Bridgeton Pike, State Route 45 with Mantua Boulevard/Berkley Road (CR632) Intersection Project
The County of Gloucester also through agreement and permit with the NJDOT is currently designing the widening of the Route 45/CR632 intersection in Mantua Township.  The project will better align the opposing direction of Mantua Boulevard/Berkley Road (CR632) to allow for concurrent movements of travel on CR632 thereby increasing the operating level of the intersection to acceptable limits.   Opposing left turn lanes will also be constructed on CR632.  The project also includes ADA handicap ramp improvements and increasing the turning radii to permit for truck movements.  The project is in design with anticipated construction in 2022 upon permit approval from the NJDOT.

Cooper Street CR 706 Bridge / Dam at Almonesson Lake
This Local Concept Development project involves reviewing the feasibility of various improvements to the bridge, dam, and roadway on Cooper Street CR 706 at Almonesson Lake, Bridge 3-K-3.  This project will evaluate alternatives from bridge repairs to replacement and possible widening.  A public information session was held on February 19, 2020.  Evaluation of concepts continues with upcoming meeting planned with the NJDOT & NJDEP.  Construction on this project is tentatively planned for 2023.
