(Lindenwold, NJ) – A roadway improvement project is getting underway on Sherman Avenue, located in an industrial area between River Road and Westfield Avenue in Pennsauken Township. The project broke ground on May 16 and is slated to be complete in November. The roadway improvements are needed to maintain the economic vitality of the industrial area in Pennsauken Township since the roadway has heavy tractor trailer traffic.
The $2.3 million project includes cold-in-place reclamation of the roadbed and concrete curb, driveways and drainage improvements to bring the roadway up to Camden County standards.
“Crews will be working on this project throughout peak commuting hours for the next several months so, we recommend that motorists plan ahead and seek an alternative route to avoid potential delays,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “As a reminder, whenever you’re traveling through a construction zone please slow down and be aware of your surroundings.”
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.
