The Camden County freeholder board recently approved funds for two projects to improve safety and access in and around Barrington, according to a county release.
In the larger project, the board approved $398,380 for new asphalt, drainage inlets, bicycle-safe drainage grates, traffic striping and traffic lights along East Atlantic Avenue from Haines Avenue in Barrington to Gloucester Pike in Lawnside.
The second project — costing $108,290 — will include a school-crossing sign with solar-powered flashing lights, new traffic striping and handicapped-accessible sidewalks and curbs at Highland Avenue, Mercer Drive and First Avenue on the Barrington and Haddon Heights border.
“The Camden County Department of Public Works is finalizing contracts for both projects so that construction dates can be announced in the near future,” Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Department of Public Works, said in the release.
