Maintenance Paving Contract to Mill and Pave Sections of Dennisville-Petersburg Road (CR610) in Upper Township
On September 25th and 26th, South State, Inc. of Bridgeton, NJ, the contractor on the Cape May County’s 2017 Maintenance Paving Contract, plans to mill and pave various sections of Dennisville-Petersburg Road (CR610) in the Petersburg section of Upper Township. Construction work hours are typically from 7:00am to 6:00pm. There will be localized lane closures during working hours and directional traffic will be alternated in the open lane through the use of flaggers.
The various areas slated for paving are between Wyncroft Drive and NJ Route 50. South State will start on Monday morning in the westbound lane first. The depth of milling of the existing asphalt surfacing varies from 2 inches to 5 inches deep. The resurfacing will match existing elevations.
Dennisville-Petersburg Road will be open each night after construction working hours, however motorists are cautioned that there will be times when there is no centerline striping. Temporary pavement markers will be placed to delineate the centerline. Motorists are advised to avoid the work areas, and if not, to use caution when traveling through the construction zones.
Variable message signs advising motorists of the pending paving work will be placed prior to and during the work operations.
This schedule is subject to change and is dependent upon having good weather.
