Tonight marks the beginning of several roadway reconstruction projects in Haddonfield starting on Kings Highway. Work hours will run from approximately 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday. Detours will be in place and the roads will remain open during the day for both rush hour commutes.
From Monday, Oct. 17 to Tuesday, Oct 18, paving work will be done from Chews Landing Road to the Patco Speedline Bridge; from Wednesday, Oct. 19 to Thursday, Oct. 20, work will be done from the Patco Bridge to Haddon Avenue; and from Monday, Oct. 24 to Tuesday, Oct. 25, work will be done from Haddon Avenue to Evergreen Lane.
“This work will greatly increase road conditions and efficiency for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists,” said Commissioner Al Dyer, liaison to the Department of Public Works. “If you need to travel through these areas during work hours, remember to slow down and stay alert for crew members and debris.”
The investment of these county roadways that traverse the borough will have an aggregate cost of about $1 million. Additionally, these roadways were identified for renovation because of their heavy volume of multimodal traffic and deteriorated conditions.
