(Lindenwold, NJ) – In effort to ensure all the roads and bridges in Camden County are structurally sound the Commissioner Board will commence a reconstruction of the Kings Highway Bridge Deck. The project will take place adjacent to Washington and Westmont avenues on April 18. The bridge is also a significant feeder into the Haddonfield PATCO station for commuters.
Work will include repairs to the concrete bridge deck, PPC bridge deck overlay, asphalt mill and overlay of the bridge approaches, the installation of a concrete curb and sidewalk and improvements to the handicap ramps.
“This project is crucial to the continued safety and efficiency of our county’s infrastructure,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “Crews will remain on the job for several months but once the work is finished, travel times and conditions for motorists will be vastly improved. This enhancement will have a positive impact on our local economy. pedestrians, bicyclists and motor vehicles traversing Haddon Avenue.”
Kings Highway will remain open in both directions for the majority of the project. There will be lane shifts on the bridge and a detour will be set for only small portion of time at end of the work period. Work should be completed by October 2022.
