(Lindenwold, NJ) – The Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Works is reconstructing Jackson Road (CR 534) from the vicinity of Atco Avenue in Waterford Township to Route 73 in Berlin Township.
“Improving our roadway and bridge infrastructure while increasing highway safety is one of the best investments we can make in our county,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “Each year the Freeholder Board identifies roadways and bridges that are in need of improvement across our region.”
The $2,221,778.90 project will include the milling and repaving of the roadway, along with the installation of curbs, inlets, manholes, sidewalks and traffic striping. It is anticipated that the project will conclude on December 6, 2017. The exact timing of the project may be altered by weather or other factors.
“Jackson Road is a highly-traveled route from Route 73 to Waterford Township. Motorists need to be aware of the construction taking place and plan accordingly,” Shin Angulo said. “Whenever you are driving through a road construction zone, please stay prepared for traffic pattern changes and be observant of posted instructions or directions.”
The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining 1,400 lane miles of county roadway and 50 bridges. To report concerns on Camden County roadways, call (856) 566-2980 or visit www.camdencounty.com.
