(Lindenwold, NJ) – The Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Works will begin repairs to three bridges on April 24 that should conclude in two weeks. The exact timing of the project is dependent upon the weather and other factors.
Improvements will take place on South Cropwell Road bridge over Cropwell Brook in Cherry Hill Township, and on the Evesham Road bridge over Otter Brook in Runnemede. Both of these projects will have minimal impact on traffic.
Repairs will also be made on the King’s Highway bridge over the south branch of Newton Creek where Audubon, Haddon Heights and Mt Ephraim meet. To accommodate this project, the roadway will be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic. The intersection of East Lake Drive will be closed during construction times.
“Improving our roadway 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 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.
