(Lindenwold, NJ) – In April, a $2 million improvement project will begin in Voorhees Township at the intersection of Lafayette Avenue and Haddonfield – Berlin Road and will proceed for the length of Lafayette Avenue to state highway Route 73. The Department of Public Works will repave a one mile stretch of highway and will make wholesale enhancements to the stormwater system while also improving the existing sidewalk and curbs. The project is expected to take approximately four to six months to complete.
“Making sure that our county’s infrastructure is in its best state is a top priority for the Board of Commissioners,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “Projects such as this ensure that we are keeping up with the needs of the county’s roadways and bridges to maintain safety and efficiency for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.”
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. The Public Works Department is located in Lindenwold where personnel are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve the residents of Camden County.
