Camden County's Department of Public Works has announced it will start emergency road work on County House Road in Gloucester Township this week, as the county and the rest of South Jersey begins to tackle the divets and potholes left behind by the tough winter.

Some $1.5 million has been set aside for the reconstruction of county roads as the spring construction season gears up. 

“Since the last snow fall and all winter long, public works crews have been diligently working to fill pot holes across Camden County,” said Freeholder Ian Leonard.  “The harsh winter has made it necessary for us to mill and overlay a section of County House Road through the Lakeland Complex rather than patch holes in the pavement. This will be the first in a number of emergent repairs.”

The county is asking residents to report potholes and other hazards to the Camden County Public Works Hotline, which is manned 24 hours and 7 days a week, at (856) 566-2980.  

“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,” Leonard said.
