(Lindenwold, NJ) – Part of Broadway in Camden will close beginning Saturday, Nov. 18. Crews will be milling and repaving the roadway along the block of Broadway between Cooper Street and Penn Street. The project is expected to last one day.
“Improving our roadway 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 Camden County Department of Public Works. “Until construction is completed, motorists should try to plan around the area and take extra caution when driving through the construction zone.”
The block will be closed to thru traffic at all times during the construction, however, emergency vehicles will still have access to the roadway. Camden County Police will be present to assist motorists along a detour route. Scheduling is subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen variables.
The highway department and county engineers are responsible for maintaining 1,400 lane 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.
