South Lenola Road, between Camden Avenue and Kings Highway in Moorestown, will be closed starting Monday, Nov. 12, as construction crews begin replacing 700 feet of drainage pipe.
Construction is expected to begin Friday, Nov. 9, according to Joseph T. Brickley, public works director and county engineer.
The construction will necessitate closing South Lenola Road between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. each day for about a week, weather permitting. A detour will be posted.
South State, Inc., of Bridgeton, is the contractor for the $168,332 project that involves replacing the existing deteriorated, perforated corrugated metal pipe with an 18-inch perforated polyethylene pipe.
The drainage pipe is under South Lenola Road from the bridge over the north branch of the Pennsauken Creek that divides Moorestown and Maple Shade to the driveway entrance of The Arbors apartment complex in Maple Shade.
The posted detour is from West Camden Avenue (CR 537) to Route 73 to Route 38 to Route 41 to Kings Highway (CR611).
