Camden County Public Works Crews on the Job

Share this:

(Lindenwold, NJ) – As a snow is moving through the region throughout today, crews from the Camden County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) are working to treat streets and keep the county’s 1,200 lane miles of road safe and passable for motorists.


Areas of light snow have been falling since early Friday morning. This will turn steadier and light to moderate throughout the morning and any untreated pavement will be covered. As snow persists, pavements can turn more variable around the early afternoon with lighter periods of snow and as temperatures slightly increase to around or just over 32. Temperatures dip back down towards sunset so surfaces will see a more uniform coverage prior to snow lightening up after sunset tapering to snow showers and exiting in the evening. Anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of snow is expected to accumulate, with the highest amounts south of the Atlantic City Expressway where 5 inches is possible. Frigid overnight temperatures will follow so any wet spots or slush that remains will freeze up.


“Our crews will be working throughout the day and into the evening to make sure that our roads are safe for residents,” Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the DPW. “We are clearing snow and treating roads to avoid any dangerous buildup of snow or ice. We are recommending that residents stay home and off the roads due to potentially slick conditions but if you must travel, just do so carefully.”
