Camden County Conducting Emergency Work on Warwick Road in Haddonfield

The road work is a result of the amount of snowfall that hit the region this winter, and is expected to take several days.

The Camden County Department of Public Works is conducting emergency road work on sections of Warwick Road in Haddonfield.

The road work will take place over the course of several days, and is necessary because of the amount of snowfall throughout the region over the winter.

Drivers should be aware of the project and expect some delays around the area of construction during peak drive times. The exact timing of the project depends on weather conditions.

“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 Warwick Road in the borough rather than patch holes in the pavement.”

The Department of Public Works still has several crews throughout the area patching thousands of potholes, highlighted by the use of the county's "Pothole Killer," which enables a single worker to patch a pothole in 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 said. “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 at 856-566-2980.  The number is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
