Major improvements to North Church Street in Cinnaminson and Moorestown are included in this year’s Burlington County road resurfacing program.
Freeholders approved the program earlier this week, allocating $7.3 million for the overlay of 22 roads in 21 municipalities for a total of 25.4 miles.
A majority of the project will be funded through the state Transportation Trust Fund, from which the county will receive nearly $5 million dollars, an increase of $430,100 from 2013. The remaining $2.3 million will be funded by the county.
“This annual initiative is essential to maintaining our county roads, and in Burlington County we do it right,” said Arter. “I am pleased to announce that based on our proven ability to effectively execute this program we will now be one of the few counties in the state to receive increased funding upfront. This is an example of what good government should be—taking advantage of all available state and federal funds, and being judicious with our taxpayers’ money to deliver services to as many of our residents as possible.”
Among the roads approved for resurfacing in 2014 are:
2.4 miles of North Church Street from New Albany Road to Route 130 in Moorestown and Cinnaminson
0.4 miles of Lenola Road from Route 38 to Kings Highway in Maple Shade and Moorestown
0.5 miles of Bridgeboro Road from 900 feet north of Moorestown Township line to Haverford Court in Delran
1.6 miles of Hartford Road from Hainesport-Mount Laurel Road to Route 38 in Mount Laurel
0.5 miles of Ark Road from Route 38 to Marne Highway in Mount Laurel
2.3 miles of Church Street from Greentree Road to Teal Lane in Evesham and Mount Laurel
The county highway network includes 508.4 miles of county roads, 364 bridges, 700 culverts, more than 243 traffic control devices and 17,000 signs.
