(Lindenwold, NJ) – Camden County has partnered with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission to conduct an inventory of county road conditions. This pavement assessment will help the Camden County Department of Public Works (CCDPW) prioritize projects and obtain additional grant funding for the repairs.
“A specially equipped van will crisscross Camden County, checking and logging road conditions to determine areas that need to be addressed,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the CCDPW. “From the Delaware River to the Pine Barrens, CCDPW’s core mission is to keep cars on the roads and our region moving.”
The CCDPW is responsible for maintaining 1,200 lane miles of county roadway and 50 bridges. They are dedicated to making our area safer for motorists and pedestrians through county highway construction projects and road maintenance, including pothole repairs, street sweeping, grass cutting and storm drainage upkeep.
“Improving our roadway infrastructure while increasing highway safety is one of the best investments we can make in our county,” Shin Angulo said. “Each year the Freeholder Board identifies roadways and bridges that are in need of improvement across our county and include them in our roadway improvement plan.”
The Freeholder Board asks residents to report road hazards they encounter to the Camden County Public Works Hotline 856-566-2980. The number is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When residents call the CCDPW to report an issue, county personnel will come out to address the situation within a short period of time.
