The county is making emergency stormwater draining repairs along part of the road.

Camden County submitted the following news release:

The Camden County Department of Public Works (DPW) is conducting emergency stormwater drainage repairs on Erial Road in Gloucester Township. The work commenced today (Wednesday, Jan. 2) and will continue for the next five days, weather permitting. As always, the length of this project will be determined by the weather and other factors.

The work is necessitating the partial closure of Erial Road from Hickstown Road to College Drive for the next five days between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Only one lane of traffic will remain open heading from Hickstown Road to College Drive during these times. 

“Please plan an alternante route if your travel plans include this section of roadway to avoid delays,” said Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County DPW. “We appreciate your patience and understanding while our DPW crews work to make these needed improvements to our roadway infrastructure.”

The Camden County Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining over 400 center line miles of county roadway, more than a thousand miles of storm drain infrastructure and dozens of bridges throughout the region. This year the Freeholder Board has invested more than $40 million for county road improvement projects in 2012 alone.

"This year the Freeholder Board has invested more than $40 million for county road improvement projects in 2012 alone". Erial Rd NEEDS to be REPAVED. Mayor Mayer and Council should plan their travels on Erial Rd 5 days a week and FEEL for themselves just what Erial residents vehicles are being subject to. Then demand FULL repaving of the road when the sewage pipe work is done. Here is your invite Mr. Mayer and Council.

Erial Road is also never plowed when it snows - all the other roads are in decent shape, but Erial Road is always horrible

Pat, I know that it is a "County" road ,but after all, the Public works trucks could drop their plows going in and out of their parking lot right on Erial Rd.
