White Horse Bridge Road in Lindenwold Closed For Emergency Repairs

The road closed Wednesday night and will remain closed until repairs are complete.

The White Horse Road Bridge over the PATCO tracks in Lindenwold closed for emergency repairs Wednesday night, the Camden County Freeholder Board announced. It will be closed until work is complete.

The Camden County Department of Public Works urges drivers to seek alternate routes if their commute normally includes White Horse Road.

“County engineers are closing the bridge due to structural concerns," Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, said. "We appreciate the patience and understanding of motorists for any inconvenience they may experience due to delays or detours posted during this emergency repair project.”

The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining 1,200 lane miles of county roadway and 50 bridges.

Wow. That area has always been a congested mess, so much so, that I always use Somerdale Road instead. Glad I don't commute in that direction, but still am going to have to come up with a Plan C now.

You mean you don't live, WORK, and PAY in Gloucester Township?

Actually, Paul, as its slogan says, I do live, work, and play (and as you say, pay), in Gloucester Township. Mostly I have to get on the other side of the White Horse Pike for doctor appointments. I'm going to have to build in extra travel time now.

What do you think happens when the county picks it's engineers based on how much they donate? Their spokesman says it was found to be in need of maintenance in the Fall but failed because of the winter. I call bullshit on this one. What happened was a barely competent junior engineer (you know, like the kind that uses stop watches to time yellow light cameras) popped their head under the bridge and said "mmmeeehhh beams could be better but I am late for the fundraiser and don't want to miss the weenie tray." Pay to Play has serious consequences people. You had your chance to stop it but keep re-electing the same Norcrats. Enjoy the results of your votes.

You're just a spoil-sport, Stache. I have it on the word of no less than Dear Leader Dave Mayer, Council President Glen Bianchini, and S. Dan Hutchison that we don't have a Pay-to-Play problem in this town. Every candidate needs a donor that will kick $64,000 into the bucket for re-election else how to get elected? We're a one party town and we're proud of it. To hell with the two-party system, we have a better way.
