Gloucester County is receiving $5.75 million for construction projects throughout the county Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger and Freeholder Heather Simmons announced on Monday.

The federal funding will support road resurfacing projects in Deptford, Mantua, Harrison and Franklin townships. The projects could begin in 2015.

Tuckahoe Road in Franklin Township, Woodbury-Glassboro Road in Deptford Township bordering Mantua Township, and North Main Street/Route 45 in Mullica Hill are all slated for major upgrades.

The roads we have received funding for today have not been resurfaced in many years and require updating and safety improvements like bicycle safe grates and new guardrails,” Damminger said. "The Woodbury-Glassboro Road project will also include the construction of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Salina Road/Barkbridge Road at the Deptford/Wenonah municipal boundary.”

“The roads the county will be able to repair through receiving this funding are major and costly projects.  Sometimes we all feel like we don't get anything back from Washington DC, but this funding helps keep our budget inline and our infrastructure safe,” Simmons said.
