Major Egg Harbor Township traffic detour in effect through Saturday

  • 0

A heavily traveled road in Egg Harbor Township is being closed to all traffic for the rest of the week.

Starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Fire Road was closed to all traffic between Tilton Road and Washington Avenue, around the area of the Wal-Mart being built at Oak Tree Plaza.

The normally busy road will remain closed through 8 a.m. Saturday.

Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes and can expect heavier than normal traffic on surrounding roads, such as Tilton Road, the Black Horse Pike and Washington Avenue.

Portions of Fire and Old Egg Harbor roads will reopen to traffic throughout the evening and overnight hours Friday through the following morning, but delays may still be encountered.

The roads will fully reopen to traffic starting Saturday morning.

The new traffic signals at Fire and Old Egg Harbor roads, and Old Egg Harbor Road and Hingston Avenue are in flashing mode and will be fully activated May 15. Lane shifts may be needed during the activation process.

Motorists are advised to proceed with caution in dealing with these new and altered traffic patterns.
