Paving to Begin on Jarvis Road in Gloucester Township

The paving work will start May 15 and continue for 45 days.

Camden County submitted the following news release: 

Jarvis Road (County Route 687) will be repaved from Sicklerville Road (County Route 705) to mile marker .75 in the vicinity of Maynard Drive in Gloucester Township. The work is scheduled to begin May 15, and it is anticipated to last for 45 calendar days. The exact timing of the project is dependent upon the weather and other factors.

“The maintenance of county roadways is one of the most important functions for the Freeholder Board and an important investment for the residents and businesses of Camden County,” said Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. “Jarvis Road is one of the better traveled roadways through the southern portion of Camden County, and this reconstruction will improve the quality of life for residents and commuters in the area.”

When completed, the $496,900 project will include the milling and resurfacing of the roadway along with the installation of concrete vertical curbing and handicap ramps, new eco-friendly inlet and manhole castings, new traffic striping and markings and new high-visibility roadway reflectors.

“We appreciate your patience and understanding during the repaving,” Leonard said. “Please remember to allow yourself extra time if plan to travel this route during the construction.”

You are correct, county funds. Different account, same people. There are some very close ties between GT politicians and the Freeholders. The county takes in even more vendor cash than GT does. That is how the game is also played. Donate to one person contract from their "special friend".

Pure speculation on this, but I wonder if this morning's rain storms called off work for the day.

Ok, but no work had been done yesterday either. Plus the rain was very brief and sunny all day. Also, there was a county truck patching potholes over by Overbrook HS. Maybe Patch could ask the county and report the facts on this. That would be great.
