New Jersey Department of Transportation officials announced a shoulder closure on Route 152 eastbound over Broad Thorofare as a bridge maintenance painting project began in Egg Harbor Township, between Longport and Somers Point.
The work began Monday, July 25 as traffic shifted to the northern side of the Route 152 eastbound bridge over Broad Thorofare to create a work zone in the right shoulder.
The shoulder will remain closed for approximately six months while NJDOT’s contractor, Commodore Maintenance Inc., conducts sandblasting and painting operations. Traffic and access to the sidewalk will be maintained throughout the project.
The project is part of a $27 million federally funded bridge painting contract to perform preventative maintenance on bridges statewide.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information.
