Cinnaminson Part of County Road Resurfacing Plan

The $7.7 million program hits more than 20 miles along 16 roads in 14 towns.

Freeholders this week reviewed the plans and specifications of Public Works Director Joseph T. Brickley’s Annual Road Resurfacing Program for what is anticipated to cost $7.7 million to overlay 16 county roads in 14 municipalities for a total of 21.4 miles.

Cinnaminson is included in that plan.

The county would fund the project with $4,504,000 from the annual NJ Transportation Trust Fund. The remaining $3.2 million would be funded by the county. Freeholders are expected to approve the plans and specifications, and authorize advertising for bids at the Oct. 24 meeting.

"This annual initiative is essential in maintaining our county roads in order to alleviate major reconstruction of roads if they are left in disrepair," Freeholder Deputy Director Joseph B. Donnelly said. "And we do it right. Over the course of the last four years, we will have milled, overlayed with about 315,000 tons of asphalt and striped nearly a quarter of our county roads."

Utility companies and the 14 municipalities in which construction will be scheduled according to the 2012 plan have been notified to avoid conflicting with any other road construction projects.

County roads scheduled to be resurfaced in 2012 include (Bolded are the areas in and closest to Cinnaminson):

  • 0.5 miles of Bordentown Road (County Route 657) from Route 130 to Columbus Road (CR543) in Burlington City

Oh boy, this is good, and our taxes will not go up, yes.....and this is from the county I wonder how they selected these roads...thanks

Good, fix them all. Those roads are hell in a lowered car.

I have two thoughts about this article. One it appears to be too late to pave in 2012. The earliest you could award this contract under this timeline would be mid-November. By the time you award and mobilize a contractor, most asphalt plants will be closing because of cold weather. So this news release appears to be a political plug for the Republican incumbent freeholders re-election efforts. Secondly, if the County is serious about realigning the Parry Rd, Riverton Rd., Branch Pike intersection, why would you pave it in 2012 or whenever they can after the winter and then rip it up to realign the intersection. It appears to be waste of taxpayer money if the County realignment is proceeding for this intersection.

Paving Riverton Road from Rt. 130 to Bridgeboro Road???? Does that mean we are NOT getting a Roundabout? Darn, I was preparing to drive around and around and see how many people would hit me. I would afterall have the right of way once inside the roundabout. Weee Weee Weeeeeeeeeeee…….. Still a stupid idea.

Bill, I'm inclined to believe you but aren't Garganio and O'Brian the ones running? You would think the article would mention them if it was a political thing. But I also have some questions about the timing. Maybe Christina will follow up with this?

I think there is a typo here but the typo is the county’s fault and not Patch’s. According to the BCT this plan is actually for 2013. I also noticed, via Google, that the county’s press release for 2011 Road Resurfacing was dated December 1, 2010. The county’s press release for 2012 Road Resurfacing was released on January 11, 2011. Yes, it is curious that the county usually waits until winter to issue this press release but this year they issue it just before the tight election. Anyone wonder what else they plan for just before the election?

Yes once again "The Patch" is Headlining the Story for "THE FREEHOLDERS" so everyone can say "WOW look what they are doing"> you would have to be an idiot not to see thru this smokescreen! It is so predictable.
