    Please see the below information forwarded to our Agency regarding Kresson Road construction:

    (July 14, 2016) – The Camden County Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Works (DPW) is continuing to work on a roadway improvement project on Kresson Road (CR 671) from Evesham Road to Route 73 Voorhees Township.

    On July 18, one-way traffic and a detour will be implemented to accommodate the milling and paving of the road surface.  One-way traffic will be in place allowing travel on Kresson Road from Evesham Road toward Route 73.  Vehicles traveling from Route 73 toward Evesham Road will be detoured onto Kresson-Gibbsboro Road, to Cooper Road, back to Evesham Road.

    “Improving our roadway infrastructure while increasing highway safety is one of the best investments we can make in our county,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the DPW.  “The dependence on a strong highway system is paramount for everyone in the county from residents to businesses.”

    When completed, the $1.2 million project will include the installation of bike lanes, concrete curbs, driveway aprons, traffic striping, pavement markers and handicap ramp improvements. Storm water improvements will also take place as part of the improvement project.

    “Whenever you are driving through a road construction zone, please prepare for traffic pattern changes, and be observant of posted instructions or message boards,” Shin Angulo said. “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 during these improvement projects.”

    The highway department and county engineers are responsible for maintaining 1,400 lane miles of county roadway and 50 bridges. They are dedicated to making our area safer for motorists and pedestrians through county highway construction projects and road maintenance, including pothole repairs, street sweeping, grass cutting and storm drainage upkeep.  The Public Works Department is located in Lindenwold where personnel are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve the residents of Camden County.
