(Lindenwold, NJ) – Hurricane Isaias left behind downed trees, power lines, and other debris across Camden County after passing through our region yesterday. Department of Public Works crews have been actively working to remove road hazards blocking county roadways since the storms hit and are continuing to work as quickly as possible to restore access to all major thoroughfares.
After hours of work, Kresson Road in Voorhees reopened fully this morning. Closures remain in place along Central Avenue in Winslow and Warwick Road in Haddonfield.
“We want to thank our residents for their patience and understanding as we continue to get these areas cleared and safe for motorists,” said Freeholder Barbara Holcomb, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “Downed trees and broken limbs are often intertwined with active power lines which have to be de-energized by utility providers before crews can safely remove the debris from the roadway. Our crews will continue working throughout the day to reopen all county roadways which have been affected as soon as possible.”
The Camden County Department of Public Works maintains over 400 miles of county highways. Public Works personnel perform a wide range of tasks, ranging from engineering to snowplowing, to ensure county roads remain well maintained and safe for the motoring public.
