(Lindenwold, NJ) – The Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Works has made significant progress on two major improvement projects.
Nicholson Road (CR 635) between the Black Horse Pike and White Horse Pike in Audubon is now open to traffic.
The project to reconstruct the East Atlantic Avenue Bridge over Nicholson Road has progressed to the point where traffic can safely travel under the new bridge. When completed, the project will include the complete reconstruction of the span and full replacement of the bridge abutments.
“Improving our roadway and bridge infrastructure while increasing highway safety is one of the best investments we can make in our county,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “Each year the Freeholder Board identifies roadways and bridges that are in need of improvement across our region.”
Jackson Road (CR 534) has also reopened to traffic from Route 73 to Atco Avenue in Waterford Township.
“The unique aspect to this project is that heavy equipment was utilized to grind up and mix the existing asphalt with binding materials to create the new road. The reconstructed roadway will not need to be repaved for approximately 50 years, much longer than the typical asphalt project.”
The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining 1,200 lane miles of county roadway and 50 bridges. To report concerns on Camden County roadways, call (856) 566-2980 or visit www.camdencounty.com.
