(Lindenwold, NJ) – The Camden County Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Works (CCDPW) is undertaking a roadway improvement project on Tansboro Road (CR 561) in Winslow Township.
To accommodate the construction, no traffic will be permitted into the intersection of Tansboro and Taunton Roads, and a detour will be in place beginning tomorrow for the next two days weather permitting.
“Tansboro Road is a main route of travel between Winslow and Berlin, and it is our responsibility to keep it in the best condition possible,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the CCDPW. “We ask that motorists report any roadway concerns they encounter to us. We need the public to be engaged in the effort to make Camden County a better place to live and drive throughout our 1,400 lane miles of highway.”
When completed, the $2.5 million project will include the resurfacing of the roadway, the installation of curbs and storm water improvements. There will also be handicap accessible ramps installed, along with driveway approaches.
Motorists should be cognizant of the project and expect some delays around the area of construction during peak drive times. The roadway improvements should be completed by the end of August. The exact timing of the project is dependent upon the weather and other factors.
Camden County is aggressive about repairing all county maintained roads. 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.
