The Route 130 drawbridge over the Raccoon Creek in Logan Township will be closed over the next five weekends for maintenance repair work, according to NJDOT officials.

The bridge will be closed to motorists in both directions beginning around 4 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 and reopening by 5 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 22.

The Route 322 ramp connections from both directions to Route 130 southbound will also be restricted during the same time frame.

  • Route 130 southbound motorists will take Route 322 eastbound to I-295 southbound to CR 620/Center Square Road westbound to Route 130 southbound.
  • Route 130 northbound motorists will take CR 620/Center Square Road east to I-295 northbound to Route 322 westbound to Route 130 northbound.
  • Route 322 motorists destined for Route 130 southbound will be directed to use I-295 southbound to CR 620/Center Square Road westbound to Route 130 southbound.
  • Access to Gloucester County Dream Park, located on the south side of Raccoon Creek, will be maintained from Route 130 northbound.  Park visitors coming from Route 130 southbound will follow the detour route, then turn right onto Route 130 northbound for access to the park.

Closures are also planned for the weekends of Oct. 26, Nov. 2, Nov. 9 and Nov. 16 and will utilize the same closure intervals and detours listed above. If the work is completed earlier, all five weekend closures will not be necessary.

NJDOT has planned the closures over weekend periods to minimize the impact to Route 130 motorists. Waterway traffic will not be impeded by the construction.
