Roadwork To Begin On Maple Avenue In Merchantville And Pennsauken

The Camden County Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Works (CCDPW) is scheduled to begin a roadway improvement project on Maple Avenue in Merchantville and Pennsauken on June 27, 2016.

“Maple Avenue connects Merchantville and Pennsauken, and it is our responsibility to keep it in the best condition possible,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the CCDPW.  “We ask that motorists report any roadway concerns they encounter to us.  We need the public to be engaged in the effort to make Camden County a better place to live and drive throughout our 1,400 lane miles of highway.”

The $1.2 million project will include the resurfacing of the roadway from Poplar Avenue to Center Street.  The project will also feature the installation of handicap ramp improvements, concrete curbs, driveway aprons, traffic striping, raised pavement markers and drainage improvements.

The project is expected to be completed in about five months.  The exact timing of the project is dependent upon the weather and other factors. Motorists should be cognizant of the project and expect some delays around the area of construction during peak drive times.

Camden County is aggressive about repairing all county maintained roads. The Freeholder Board asks residents to report road hazards they encounter to the Camden County Public Works Hotline (856) 566-2980.  The number is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
