Hurricane Evacuation Drill Ongoing Today
You may notice an increased presence of police on South Jersey roadways today.
The State Police and the NJDOT will be conducting emergency evacuation drills today. No roads will be closed during the drill, but you may see extra police activity on the Garden State Parkway from mile marker 0 in Lower Township to mile marker 38 in Egg Harbor Township and the entore length of the Atlantic City Expressway.
Drills will also be conducted on Route 72, from mile marker 0 in Woodland to approximately mile marker 29 in Ship Bottom and on Route 47 in Dennis Township from mile marker 16 to 21.
The drill is being conducted to simulate a contraflow procedure, which would reverse traffic on a roadway to travel in the opposite direction. You can get more details NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for up to the minute traffic information and delays.
