With a particularly harsh winter decimating county roadways, the Camden County Freeholder Board is requesting assistance from county residents in identifying all road hazards, including potholes, to the Department of Public Works.

“It has always been the case that residents are our best eyes on roadways and we, as a collective Board, want address potholes and roadway concerns from the Delaware River to the County line,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, said. “We need you to become engaged in this effort to make Camden County a better place to live and drive throughout our 1,200 lane miles of highway.”

Road hazards should be reported to the Department of Public Works by calling 856-566-2980.  The number is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

County personnel will be out to address any issues within a short period of time, Leonard said.

“This program is dependent on us, your elected officials, and Camden County residents working together to identify areas in need of improvements,” Leonard said.  “As a Board we are always looking at ways to create more access and engagement with the public.  The Department of Public Works Hotline provides direct access to a significant department with a core mission of keeping cars on the roads and our region moving.”
