Railroad-crossing repairs announced
for Jessup Road in West Deptford
Necessary safety work will require road closure and detour
(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced a planned railroad crossing repair project that will require the closure of Jessup Road in West Deptford, Gloucester County.
Jessup Road is scheduled to be closed to traffic in both directions at the freight rail crossing near the intersection of Jessup Road and Budd Boulevard from 7 a.m. on Tuesday, November 26, until around 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 27.
• Traffic will be detoured using Parkville Road and Kings Highway (CR 551).
• Access will be maintained to residential properties and businesses on either side of the rail line.
If the work is completed earlier, the roadway will be reopened accordingly.
In order to provide a safer and smoother railroad crossing in West Deptford the freight rail contractor will replace the existing crossing with a new concrete freight rail crossing bed, install new tracks, and repave the asphalt approaches. This project is included within NJDOT’s railroad grade-crossing safety program which repairs, upgrades, or removes approximately 30 crossings each year, statewide.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information.
