300-day detour begins Monday for Mill Road at EHT
As part of the Garden State Parkway expansion project in Atlantic County, drivers using a road in Egg Harbor Township will have to get used to a detour starting Monday.
And that detour could be in place for the rest of the year or around the next 300 days.
According to Atlantic County officials, beginning Monday, March 7 and continuing through the end of 2022, Mill Road will be closed to eastbound traffic between Patcong Drive and Fire Road.
The road will not open to westbound traffic until 3 p.m. Monday after the eastbound detour is in place. The westbound lane will then remain open for the duration of the work.
This inconvenience is part of an $84 million project by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority to improve the boardwalk between terminals 30 and 35 in the EHT.
Drivers who usually use the east side of Mill Road can use the posted detour or find their own creative way around roadworks.
