HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — A major township intersection will be closed during daytime hours for several weeks starting Wednesday, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

Route 40 between Farragut Avenue and River Drive will close from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday. The daytime closing will continue for several weeks, Monday through Thursday, the NJDOT said.

Contractor IEW Construction is scheduled to make drainage maintenance improvements and install new pipe, manholes and inlets.
