The Burlington County Commissioners announced the latest County Funded Overlay Program will begin this week with repaving on a section of Camden Avenue in Maple Shade and Moorestown.
A total of 8.6 miles of roadway in six municipalities will be milled and resurfaced as part of the county’s plans. The work will be performed on the following roads:
- 0.5 miles of Camden Avenue (County Route 537) in Maple Shade and Moorestown;
- 5.7 miles of Lakehurst Road (County Route 530) in Pemberton Township;
- 1.7 miles of Rancocas Road (County Route 626) in Westampton;
- 0.7 miles of Atlantic and New York Avenues (County Route 690) in Mansfield.
In addition to those four projects, the county plans to regrade Cooper Street (County Route 630) at the intersection with Putnam Street in Beverly.
The repaving work will be performed by South State Inc., which was awarded a $3.7 million contract for the road work earlier this year.
The contract includes a Project Labor Agreement requiring the use of skilled union-labor for the work.
The repairs are scheduled to start on Camden Avenue beginning on Friday, Nov. 17. The road will be milled and repaved from South Boulevard Avenue in Maple Shade to approximately 400-feet east of the Lenola Road intersection in Moorestown.
The work will occur during the night hours and is expected to take about a week to complete. Traffic will be maintained through the work area, but motorists using the road will likely experience delays and are encouraged to find alternative routes.
Once work on Camden Avenue is completed, the contractor will progress to another road on the county plan until all five projects are completed.
The work is separate from the County’s State Funded Overlay Program. Approximately 34 miles of county road through 13 municipalities is expected to be repaved this year as part of that program.
