Centre St. Construction
The Borough notified residents about construction improvements on Centre Street, between Cove Road and Locust Street, scheduled to begin on May 10, 2021 in Pennsauken Township. Prior to this residents can expect Centre Street between Cedar Avenue and Rogers Avenue to be shut down so that PSE&G can address gas leaks in the area, scheduled between May 3rd and May 8th. As this project progresses south on Centre Street into Merchantville the contractor will provide advance notice to the business district and residents so that they may prepare accordingly. At this time we do not have a date certain that construction will begin in Merchantville and further information will be released as it is received. Once construction begins in Merchantville, all detours will be clearly marked with reflective signage and the Borough will be providing parking alternatives during to accommodate businesses, residents and visitors alike. Finally, the construction will not negatively impact Merchantville School drop off or pick up. That area of Centre Street is scheduled to be worked on during the summer months while school is out of session. Periodic updates will be posted advising of any changes in the traffic control plan and detour information will be posted on the front page of the Borough's website, www.merchantvillenj.gov.. The estimated construction duration is 250 calendar days from beginning to end.
