Emergency Road Work on Atlantic Avenue in Haddon Heights Begins

Road work is expected to continue through next week.

The Camden County Department of Public Works began emergency road work on Atlantic Avenue in Haddon Heights on Thursday. Crews already staged equipment and began milling the road for a project that is expected to last through next week.

The exact timing of the project is dependent upon the weather and other factors. Drivers should be aware of the project and expect some delays around the area of construction during peak drive times.

“The Board of Freeholders made a commitment to start paving our roadways as soon as possible because of the severity of the winter months and the toll it has taken on our streets,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, said. “In order to maintain our infrastructure it is imperative for us to mill and overlay complete sections of Atlantic Avenue in Haddon Heights rather than patch holes in the pavement.”

Additionally, the Department of Public Works continues to combat potholes by making use of its "Pothole Killer," which fills potholes completely in about 90 seconds.

“These breaks in the pavement can create safety hazards and can cause damage to vehicles, so motorists are urged to report any pothole they observe on county roads,” Leonard explained. “We need motorists 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.”

Camden County is aggressive about locating and repairing potholes on all county maintained roads. The Freeholder Board asks residents to report road hazards they encounter to the Camden County Public Works Hotline 856- 566-2980.  The number is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
