Vice Presidential visit to cause temporary closures
(Trenton) – The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) today advised motorists to expect excessive congestion and delays heading to and from Philadelphia and on roads in the Cherry Hill, Maple Shade, and Camden areas during the peak travel period this afternoon because of Vice President Biden’s visit to New Jersey.
The vice president’s visit will affect not only the major highways in the area, but also may cause congestion on local roads, particularly those with overpasses over or ramps onto main roadways. Temporary closures are expected while the vice presidential motorcade is en route to its destination. For security purposes, the time and route of travel is not disclosed.
Dynamic message signs will be deployed to alert motorists of upcoming traffic pattern changes, and local and State Police will be helping to direct traffic. Motorists are encouraged to check www.511nj.org for real-time travel information.
