The Camden County Department of Public Works will begin roadway and streetscape improvements at the intersection of Potter (CR 644) and Ellis (CR 561) Streets in Haddonfield on June 20, 2011. The project is expected to be completed by January 2012.

Motorists should be aware of this construction and choose an alternate route to avoid delays. This project will impact residents in both Haddonfield Borough and Cherry Hill Township due to its location at the border of the two municipalities.
The $2.3 million project will include the installation of a new traffic signal, repaving of intersection approaches and the construction of new turning lanes. New curbing with ADA compliant curb cuts and ramps will be installed, along with new storm water grates and streetscape improvements.
During the first phase of the project, Potter Street will be closed to traffic, but Ellis Street will remain open. During the second phase, Ellis Street will be closed and Potter Street will be open. Detours will be established and posted. Traffic planning for the project has been determined by the Haddonfield Police Department in consultation with the contractor. Haddonfield Borough will hold a public meeting on the project on June 15 at 9:30 AM in the courtroom on the first floor of Borough Hall, 242 East Kings Highway.
We appreciate motorists’ patience and caution while we make these improvements. We understand that detours and traffic delays are an annoyance, and will work to keep the roads as passable as possible.
