(Haddon Township, NJ) – The Commissioner Board’s Department of Public Works started conducting roadway improvements at the intersection of South Park Drive (CR 629) and Cuthbert Boulevard (CR 636) in Haddon Township this week. This intersection is one of the most traveled in the county and is a feeder system into Cooper River Park and the Route 70 interchange.
“We are committed to improving the safety and efficiency of the roadways here in Camden County,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “Remember to use caution while driving through construction areas and give yourself extra time to get to your destination in case of possible delays.”
The project includes the installation of a new traffic signal, inlets and RCP pipe, a concrete vertical curb, a sidewalk and handicap ramps as well as the milling and resurfacing of the pavement and traffic striping.
“Making investments into our infrastructure is one of the most important things we can do as a governing body,” Dyer said. “This project will enhance traffic flow and improve pedestrian safety in the highly traveled area.”
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.
The project is estimated to cost $643,124 and will take approximately six months to complete. To report concerns on Camden County roadways, call (856) 566-2920 or visit www.camdencounty.com.
