(Camden, NJ) – Berlin-Cross Keys Road in Pine Hill, Gloucester Township and Winslow Township will reopen on Wednesday afternoon. The road was closed temporarily as a $6.9 million road project to widen it was taking place. All work on the project will be paused for the winter and work crews will remobilize in the spring to install final pavement surfacing and permanent striping. No additional full road closures are anticipated to be needed for the project and final completion is anticipated in April.
The project widened a 1.25 mile stretch of Berlin Cross Keys Road to two lanes in either direction with a center turning lane. The widening encompasses the area between the Camden County Technical School campus at 343 Berlin-Cross Keys Road (CR 689) to Turnersville Road (CR 688.)
“This road closure definitely caused some disruptions the past few weeks, so we are thrilled that it is being reopened,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the county Department of Public Works. “This project has been a massive undertaking but one that is incredibly necessary for the health and progress of our county’s infrastructure.”
The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining over 1,200 miles of county roadway and 61 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. The Public Works Department is located in Lindenwold where personnel are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve the residents of Camden County.
