On Monday, an estimated five months of renovations will begin on a mile of county road connecting Merchantville and Pennsauken, as Maple Avenue gets $1.2 million of improvements.
The Camden County Department of Public Works will resurface the roadway from Poplar Avenue to Center Street, improve drainage and handicap ramps, and install concrete curbs, driveway aprons, traffic striping, and raised pavement markers, according to a statement from the Camden County Board of Freeholders.
“Maple Avenue connects Merchantville and Pennsauken, and it is our responsibility to keep it in the best condition possible,” said Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo in a statement.
Drivers should be aware of the work and “expect some delays around the area of construction during peak drive times,” the statement said.
Drivers in the area must also navigate road work at Route 70, 130, and Cooper Landing Road, as various other projects are underway.
Road hazards on county roads can be reported to the 24-hour County DPW hotline: 856-566-2980.
