(Lindenwold, NJ) – The Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Works is improving two bridges in Camden County.
Maple Avenue Bridge (CR 537)
The Maple Avenue Bridge (CR 537) over the South Branch of the Pennsauken Creek in Cherry Hill and Pennsauken Townships is being improved. Concrete will be used to repair the span’s east abutment footing and cracks in the substructure. Stone will be installed along the channel to provide erosion protection. The project includes superstructure improvements such as parapet and arch repairs, as well as the installation of sidewalks and curbs.
Sicklerville Road Bridge (CR 536)
Work is also being done on the Sicklerville Road Bridge (CR 536) over the Great Egg Harbor River in Winslow Township. When completed, the project will feature installation of stone along the channel to provide protection and prevent future exposure and undermining of the abutment footings.
“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 Department of Public Works. “Each year the Freeholder Board identifies roadways and bridges that are in need of improvement across our region.”
The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining 1,400 lane miles of county roadway and 50 bridges. To report concerns on Camden County roadways, call (856) 566-2980 or visit www.camdencounty.com.
