Pitman Avenue Improvements Will Be Finished This Week A final surface paving of the roadway will marks the projects completion

(Pitman, NJ) – Gloucester County Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney and Freeholder Deputy Director Bob Damminger announced today that the resurfacing and repairs that the county has been working on at Pitman Avenue would be completed this week. 

The base repairs and resurfacing of Pitman Avenue, from South Broadway to Delsea Drive, began on May 30th. 

“Pitman Avenue is a well traveled road in our county and it was in need of an upgrade,” said Freeholder Director.

“The county received a state aid grant to make base repairs and resurface these .9 miles of roadway that will make traveling a lot smoother for our residents,” Sweeney stated.  “Gloucester County is committed to improving our infrastructure and providing safe travel to our residents and commuters,” the Freeholder Director stated.

“In addition to resurfacing the roadway, the county has upgraded the signals at Pitman Avenue and South Broadway and at the Pitman Avenue and Woodbury Glassboro Road intersection,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Bob Damminger.

Freeholder Damminger, who serves as the liaison to the county’s Department of Public Works, stated, “We have placed video detection devices at these signals which improve the efficiency of the signals’ timing so that the lights flow according to traffic.  It is technology that we have used with much success on several other county roads and it is going to be a great improvement for Pitman and the people who visit here and ride through it.”

Over the past week the level paving from Woodbury Glassboro Road to South Broadway, and raising and adjusting of the manholes was completed.  The surface paving entire length of Pitman Avenue is scheduled to be completed by Wednesday, June 21st.
