Traffic pattern altered on Woodcrest Bridge in Cherry Hill

The Camden County Department of Public Works will temporarily alter the traffic pattern on a Cherry Hill bridge over PATCO and NJ Transit rail lines in advance of its refurbishment. The Woodcrest Road Bridge in Cherry Hill will have a traffic control plan implemented this week. The traffic pattern change originally scheduled for the week of Feb. 3 was postponed due to inclement weather.

Recent bridge inspection reports and recommendations from a recent study of the project area have determined that the span is in need of structural upgrades.

The project at the Woodcrest Road Bridge in in Cherry Hill Township will include temporarily narrowing of the existing lane widths from 18 feet wide to 11 feet wide and adding seven foot wide shoulders on either side of the travel lanes. The speed over the span will be reduced to 25 miles per hour during the refurbishment.

“The work will take place under the bridges, so there should be no need to reduce the number of traffic lanes during the project, and it will be performed at night during weekends to minimize train disruption,” Leonard said.
