(Lindenwold, NJ) –In April, Camden County is set to break ground on a $1.6 million roadway improvement project on Jackson Road in Berlin Borough and Berlin Township. The work will encompass Jackson Road from the White Horse Pike to Route 73 and includes drainage improvements, curb and sidewalk improvements and one mile of roadway repaving. The project is expected to take approximately four to six months to complete.
“This is an important project that will increase safety and improve travel conditions for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians throughout the region,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “Rebuilding and maintaining thousands of miles of roadway in Camden County is a monumental task that the department of public works takes on every year. That said, we have and will continue to invest in our roads, bridges and infrastructure to keep our region moving and ensure it remains a special place to work, live and play.”
The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining over 1,200 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.
