The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining more than 400 centerline miles of county roadway and 50 bridges. The Freeholder Board has allocated more than $8 million for the next round of county road improvement projects and bridge repairs that are taking place across the county this construction season.
“We consider the resurfacing and reconstruction of county roads and maintenance of bridges a top priority of the Freeholder Board,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works said. “Each year we identify roadway improvement projects across Camden County to insure we make the necessary investments in our infrastructure.”
This round of Camden County road improvement projects include:
- Cedarbrook Road (Crossroad 536) in Winslow Township will be repaved from Blue Anchor Road to South Cedarbrook Road.
- South Cedarbrook Road (Crossroad561–3) in Winslow Township will be repaved from Cedarbrook Road to Route 73.
- Cove Road (Crossroad 616) in Pennsauken Township will be repaved from River Road to Westfield Avenue.
- East Atlantic Avenue (Crossroad 727) in Barrington and Lawnside will be repaved from Gloucester Pike to Haines Avenue.
- Jarvis Road (Crossroad 687) in Gloucester Township will be repaved from Prospect Avenue to Sicklerville Road.
- Kaighn Avenue (Crossroad 607) in Camden City will be repaved from Park Boulevard to Haddon Avenue.

“We appreciate the patience and understanding of motorists for any inconvenience they may experience due to traffic delays or detours which will be posted if necessary,” said Freeholder Ian K. Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “If your travel plans involved these roadways, please consider alternant routes during these improvement projects.”
Reconstruction work also continues on the West Park Boulevard Bridge in Haddon Township. When completed this summer, the project will include new concrete curbing and handicap ramps, new inlet and manhole castings, roadway striping and markings, and full resurfacing of the roadway approaching the bridge. Work is also progressing on the Baird Boulevard Bridge and State Street Bridge in Camden City.
The Baird Boulevard Bridge will be completed in the late summer/early fall. The replacement to the historic State Street Bridge will be completed early this summer. These spans over the Cooper River are being completely replaced with modern structures that will serve the needs of motorists for decades to come.
