Burlington County plans to repave 37 miles of highways

Resurfacing work will start this month on 14 Burlington County roads totaling almost 37 miles under the county’s newest State Funded Overlay Plan.

The roads scheduled for the repairs cross through 15 Burlington County towns, including Bordentown; Mansfield; Riverton; Willingboro; Mount Laurel; Medford; Chesterfield; Hainesport; and Cinnaminson.

The first work is tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, April 8, with a 3.7-mile section of Mount Misery/Junction Road, also known as County Route 645, in Pemberton Township.

The Burlington County Commissioners approved a contract with Black Rock Enterprises of Old Bridge, Middlesex County, to perform the overlay and milling work on the roads. The $12.7 million contract is being funded largely with New Jersey Department of Transportation aid.

Work on Mount Misery/Junction Road will occur between CR 646 and CR 530. It is expected to take about three weeks to complete. Traffic will be maintained, but motorists will likely experience delays.

The new work will occur concurrently with the final repaving jobs from the county’s previous State Funded Overlay Program, which called for just over 34 miles of repaving on 17 county roads in 13 municipalities.

Burlington County is also completing resurfacing work on an additional 8.6 miles of County roads in six towns using county funding.

The work is in addition to repairs already made in-house this year by crews from the Burlington County Division of Roads and Bridges. Already this year, crews have used close to 150 tons of asphalt to repair more than 9,900 potholes.

Residents can report the location of potholes on county roads by calling the Burlington County Pothole Hotline at (609) 265-5021 or by emailing Highway@co.burlington.nj.us. There is also a form on the county website for reporting potlines at https://www.co.burlington.nj.us/368/Roads-Bridges.
