structure over Little Timber Creek and construction of a new bridge
including new abutments, bridge span, decking and parapets.

for traffic pattern changes, and be observant of posted instructions or
directions from police officers,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison
to the Camden County Department of Public Works, said.
