Tanner Street Reopening Celebration
The event marked the end of four years of improvements.
Submitted by the borough of Haddonfield:
The borough celebrated the completion of one of its biggest ongoing municipal projects, the reconstruction of Tanner Street in downtown Haddonfield, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony today.
The Haddonfield Commissioners ceremoniously cut the ribbon, midway on Tanner Street, accompanied by Tanner Street business owners. Some owners will have samplings of their wares displayed curbside. The ribbon cutting coincides with Haddonfield’s monthly First Friday event taking place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on May 4, during which artists and entertainers line the streets downtown; and the shops and restaurants offer in-store events, promotions and refreshments.
Tanner Street has been undergoing extensive improvements over the past 48 months—the end result is a revitalized, beautified street with ample parking, fresh pavement and visitor friendly access.
Completed reconstruction projects include the replacement of older pipes and sewer infrastructures running along the length of the roadway; improved parking and pedestrian accessibility through the Euclid Avenue and Haddon Avenue intersection; new curbscapes, decorative street lighting and fresh landscapes.
