(Lindenwold, NJ) – This week crews began making pedestrian improvements to Kings Highway (CR551S) in Haddon Heights and Audubon. The project will make several additions to the roadway which allow pedestrians to safely traverse the busy intersections of Kings Highway and Hillside Avenue and E. Lake Drive.
“One of the most important investments we can make into our county is to improve roadway safety, and that includes making sure that safety extends to pedestrians as well as motorists,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “Motorists should be aware that this project is underway and observe extra caution while driving through the work area.”
As part of these improvements, crews will be installing flashing LED pedestrian crossing signs, handicap ramps, pedestrian push buttons, traffic striping and traffic markers. The project is expected to last approximately 30 days. One lane of traffic will be shifted while crews are at work from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and police will be on scene to assist traffic.
Scheduling and project timing is also dependent on weather and may be adjusted due to unforeseen events.
The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining 1,200 lane miles of county roadway, 61 major bridges and 145 minor bridges. To report concerns on Camden County roadways, call (856) 566-2980 or visit
