Road construction will continue next week on Washington Avenue in Egg Harbor Township and Pleasantville, Atlantic County officials said Friday.
The work should be wrapped up within the next two to three weeks, Atlantic County Public Information Officer Linda Gilmore said.
On Monday, a detour will remain in place for westbound motorists on Washington between Route 9 and Doughty Road in Pleasantville from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., weather permitting.
Tuesday through Friday, a detour will be in place for westbound motorists on Washington between Doughty Road in Pleasantville and Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting.
Gilmore called the work a "milling and overlay project," and said the milling portion should be finished this week. The project also includes drainage and concrete work.
Motorists should follow posted detours and plan travel time accordingly or seek alternate routes, county officials said.
