Temporary Road Closure Marne Hwy (CR537) at Creek Road and Rancocas Blvd.

posted Mar 17, 2015, 7:24 AM by Unknown user
On or about Monday March 23rd, 2015; Marne Highway (CR 537) will be closed at Mason’s Creek for bridge construction by ConRail, effectively closing the intersection of Marne Hwy, Creek Rd. and Rancocas Blvd. ConRail is rehabilitating the existing multi-span bridge that carries the rail line across Mason’s Creek. The railroad tracks run parallel to Marne Highway at this location; which requires the closure of this portion of CR 537 during their construction. Marne Highway will be closed to through traffic between Ark Road (CR 674) and Hainesport - Mt. Laurel Road (CR 674).

A detour route will be posted for this closure. The proposed detour route uses Hainesport – Mt. Laurel Road (CR 674) to Rt. 38 to Ark Road (CR 634); which is approximately 3 miles long. Traffic on Creek Road (CR 636) heading southeast from Rt. 295 will be detoured onto Masonville - Centerton Rd. and should then follow the posted detour route.

Current bus routes running to this area through the signalized intersection of Creek Rd, Rancocas Blvd, and Marne Hwy will be temporarily affected; and you will need to adjust them accordingly:

  • For buses going through the intersection (traveling eastbound or westbound on Marne Highway) and do not make any student pick-ups will need to be directed to follow the proposed detour.
  • Any buses that normally travel on Creek Road to or from Marne Highway and do not make any student pick-ups should be directed to follow the posted detour.
  • Buses picking up students within the Rancocas Woods area (Creek Rd. and Rancocas Blvd.); will not be able to access Marne Hwy, but will still be able to make turns between Creek Rd. and Rancocas Blvd. Buses should access Masonville-Centerton Rd. using the signalized intersection at Creek Rd. 
  • Marne Hwy at the signalized intersection of Creek Rd. and Rancocas Blvd will be a dead end on each side. Any buses coming into the closed portion of Marne Hwy for student pick-ups will have to be coordinated in a way so that the buses can turn around.

Below is a link to a detour map as a reference. The details of the road closure are as follows:

  • First Closure: On or about March 23rd to April 13th
  • Second Closure: To be determined (tentative May 11th to 22nd)

In total, the entire construction project will take approximately 9 weeks to complete. For the weeks in between the two closures, 2 lanes of through traffic will be maintained through the construction zone.

Should you have any questions with any of the above please feel free to contact the Burlington County Engineer's Office at 856-642-3700.
