South Jersey Gas to Reopen a Portion of Laurel Road and Begin Final Construction Phase of Camden County Reliability Project

FOLSOM, N.J., May 2, 2018 – South Jersey Gas today announced a major milestone in its Camden County Reliability Project – a five-mile system upgrade to its local distribution system in Camden and Burlington counties. Laurel Road, from E. Atlantic Avenue to Chews Landing Road, will reopen to all traffic today.
South Jersey Gas appreciates the patience of all those who cooperated with detours while this vitally important work was performed. The utility will continue to coordinate work and exchange information with each impacted municipality, the county, and the state to maintain the successful collaboration needed to complete this project as safely and efficiently as possible.
The Camden County Reliability Project began in the fall of 2017 to improve service reliability in portions of Camden and Burlington counties that would otherwise be vulnerable to customer outages on peak demand days - the coldest days during the heating season. Three pressure regulating stations along the route are also being upgraded as part of the project.
Laurel Road, from Chews Landing Road to Blackwood Clementon Road, will remain closed until mid-June when construction and paving restoration is completed.
This is the final traffic detour, designated as Phase 6, which directs motorists as follows:
Northbound from College Drive to Laurel Road (CR 673):
• Turn right on Blackwood Clementon Road (CR 534)
• Turn left on Forrest Avenue
• Turn left on Chews Landing Road (CR 683)
• Turn right on Laurel Road (CR 673)
Southbound on Laurel Road (CR 673):
• Turn left on Chews Landing Road (CR 683)
• Turn right on Forrest Avenue
• Turn right on Blackwood Clementon Road (CR 534)
• Turn left on College Drive (CR 673)
Updates will continue to be available via the project webpage: www.southjerseygas.com/construction.
