Road work

Roadwork in several Atlantic County towns may affect drivers and commuters this week, according to advisories from county officials.

Starting Monday, a lane-shift traffic pattern is scheduled to be in effect from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting, on West End/Wellington Avenue between N. Albany Avenue in Atlantic City and Dorset Avenue in Ventnor.

The road, which includes the entrances to Ventnor Plaza, was repaired and repaved several months ago. County officials said there should be minimal impact to traffic, but drivers may want to chose a different route. Ventnor and Atlantic avenues run parallel routes.

Paving work on the southbound side of Elwood Road in Mullica Township between Moss Mill Road and Rt. 30 will detour traffic between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. Northbound traffic will be permitted. Motorists should follow the posted detour and extra time for travel or seek an alternate route, officials said.

Overnight work for a two-week project will impact drivers in Northfield and Linwood beginning Monday night. 

A detour will be in effect on Bargaintown Road between Zion Road in Northfield and Central Avenue in Linwood Monday through Friday during the evening and overnight hours of 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning. County officials said drivers are advised to follow the posted detour or seek an alternate route and plan travel time accordingly.
