On my way into work this morning, I was suddenly rerouted off the Black Horse Pike a half mile or so after Storybook Land all the way down to Tilton Road.

My apologies for the blurry pics; it was super early in the morning.

From what we know so far, apparently, it was a traffic accident that shut down the pike between Country Lane and Tilton Road where there are wires down. As you can see, the Wawa on the Black Horse Pike near Uibel Road currently has no power.

No word yet when that will clear.

You can pick up the Black Horse Pike heading eastbound by picking up Fire Road and going through the Tilton Road intersection until you can make that turn onto the pike.
