The County of Cape May’s 2021 Maintenance Paving contract is continuing with the last project location scheduled to be resurfaced beginning on Wednesday January 4th, weather permitting:
Tuckahoe Road Resurfacing (CR 631): The limits of the maintenance paving project will be along Tuckahoe Road beginning at Redwood Avenue and extending west to approximately 3100 west of Church Road (CR 602). The total resurfacing distance will be about 0.9 miles.
Beginning on Wednesday January 4th, the contractor will be milling the eastbound lane of the roadway and installing a bituminous leveling course. The work will be accomplished by detouring eastbound traffic during active construction. Westbound traffic will be maintained during construction activities. It is anticipated that the eastbound lane will be completely milled and leveled by the end of the day on Wednesday. On Thursday Jan. 5, westbound traffic will be shifted into the eastbound lane as the milling and leveling process is completed in the west bound lane. On Friday Jan. 6, it is anticipated that the roadway will receive the final surface course paving. During this operation, westbound traffic will be maintained, but will be switched over into the eastbound lane at some point as the paving progresses. It is expected that the resurfacing work will be completed by Friday night.
During the paving operation, eastbound traffic will be detoured east onto Butter Road (CR 637) then to Route 9. Eastbound traffic will not be permitted between Butter Road and Redwood Avenue during the active construction period. However, residents will always have access to their homes. Two-way traffic will resume each night upon completion of the day’s work activities. On Wednesday night, motorist are advised that there will be about a 1” differential between the new leveling course and existing paving along the centerline. There will likely only be reflective markings delineating the centerline as well. On the nights of Jan. 4th and Jan 5th, there will not be a paving differential; however, the centerline will still be delineated with temporary reflectors until the permanent striping is installed the week of January 9th.
