For this project, Camden County is using funds from the Federal Highway Administration that are administered by New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), Bureau of Local Aid and Economic Development. The project evaluated 12 sites for guiderail improvements. 10 of the sites had existing guiderail installations and 2 sites with no existing guiderail. Each site was analyzed to determine if guiderail was warranted, and the existing installations were compared to the current guiderail standards.
PROPOSED GUIDERAIL IMPROVEMENTS
The primary project purpose is to bring certain existing guiderail systems into compliance with current standards or install new guiderail systems where warranted along Evesham Road (CR544) in Cherry Hill and Voorhees Townships, and White Horse Road (CR673) in Voorhees Township. The design took into consideration the need to avoid requiring individual regulatory permits, avoid additional right-of-way and minimize utility relocations.

HISTORIC AND CULTURAL RESOURCES:
Federal regulations pertaining to the protection of historic properties, referred to as the Section 106 process, require the Camden County and NJDOT to take into account the effect of proposed projects upon historic resources listed in, or eligible for listing in, the National Register of Historic Places. Information about the process is available at https://www.achp.gov/sites/default/files/documents/2017-01/CitizenGuide.pdf. Camden County and NJDOT are required to solicit public input to assist in carrying out the Section 106 process.
