Lakeland Road eastbound closed for emergency roadwork

The project is expected to take approximately two days to complete, during which time Lakeland Road will be closed to eastbound traffic between Black Horse Pike and Woodbury-Turnersville Road.

Crews will be performing emergency roadwork on Lakeland Road in Gloucester Township beginning Tuesday, Oct. 1. The project is expected to take approximately two days to complete, during which time Lakeland Road will be closed to eastbound traffic between Black Horse Pike and Woodbury-Turnersville Road.

“Eastbound thru traffic will not be able to access the roadway throughout the duration of this project,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “If you are traveling through or new the construction area, be sure to be extra mindful of sudden stops, shifting traffic patterns, and any crews or equipment that may end up in the roadway. Motorists should plan their routes accordingly and be prepared for any delays associated with the corresponding detour.”

Crews will be active Tuesday, Oct. 1, and Wednesday, Oct. 2. Westbound traffic will remain open along Lakeland Road while crews are at work. Motorists traveling eastbound will be directed along a posted detour utilizing Wilson Road and Black Horse Pike to circumvent the area.

This project is expected to be completed by the end of work hours on Wednesday, Oct. 2. Scheduling and project timing is dependent on weather and may be adjusted due to unforeseen events.
