Broadway Bridge to Close Next Week for Utility Work

Work is part of the $4,154,144 reconstruction project.

Broadway Bridge connecting Gloucester City to Brooklawn will be closed April 2 and 3 due to utility work being performed by PSE&G, the Camden County Freeholder Board announced Wednesday afternoon.

The work is part of the $4,154,144 reconstruction project. The bridge will be closed between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The exact timing of the project is dependent on the weather and other factors.

“Signs will be in place and a suggested detour routes will been posted,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, said.  “Whenever you are driving through a road construction zone, please stay prepared for traffic pattern changes, and be observant of posted instructions or directions from police officers.”

The project included the demolition of the existing structure over Little Timber Creek and construction of a new bridge including new abutments, bridge span, decking and parapets.  The project also features new bridge approaches, new pedestrian sidewalks, new guide rails, traffic striping and roadway markings.

“Please be mindful of this bridge closure and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination if your commute includes this area,” Leonard said.
