The County of Cape May will commence construction on the Dias Creek Road (CR 612) resurfacing project beginning on Monday, January 23, 2023. The project limits are from Galloping Way Drive west to U.S. Route 47. Work will initially involve the installation of drainage improvements in the vicinity of Pine Ridge Road and will continue west toward U.S. Route 47. Once this section of drainage improvements has been completed, the contractor will install drainage improvements heading east toward Galloping Way Drive.
During the initial drainage installations near Pine Ridge Road and westward, Dias Creek Road will be closed to thru traffic from U.S. Route 47 east to Springers Mill Road (CR 643). Thru traffic wishing to access Dias Creek Road from U.S. Route 47 will be detoured to Springers Mill Road and head east to Dias Creek Road.
Dias Creek Road will remain open to thru traffic from Mechanic Street to Springers Mill Road. Westbound traffic will then be detoured onto Springer Mill Road to Route 47. All residents will have access to their homes at all times. School buses, emergency vehicles, and trash trucks will be able to enter the work zone. All motorist entering the work zone should proceed with caution and should expect delays.
