By ROI-NJ, Linda Lindner, November 8, 2022

On Monday, the Camden Board of Commissioners joined Congressman Donald Norcross Camden Mayor Victor Carstarphen and community members to unveil a $36.5 million federally funded infrastructure project. The project is being funded by $25 million federal infrastructure grant combined with about $11 million of state Department of Transportation grant funds.

The project will upgrade a truck route and significantly improve access between the Port of Camden and nearby Interstate 676 as well as improve stormwater management within the Port access area and the adjacent Camden neighborhood of Waterfront South. In addition, besides getting truck traffic off residential streets this generational project will enhance and improve the quality of life for residents by rebuilding and separating the stormwater and sewer system, repaving some of the worst streets in the city and mitigate flooding that occurs on regular basis.
