CAMDEN, NJ —  Two road construction projects will cause some disruption in Camden on Thursday, Dec. 5.

The projects will require complete closures of both 2yth Street and Ferry Avenue while crews are at work, Camden County Freeholder Susan Shin Angulo, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works, said.

“These are separate projects that will be impacting traffic in the city during overlapping hours,” Shin Angulo said. “Both closures are capable of producing abnormal traffic patterns in the surrounding area. Motorists should be especially mindful of sudden stops, delays, and any personnel or equipment that might end up in the roadway.”
