Springdale Road Improvements, Phase II, Evesham Road to Wilderness Drive
Springdale Road is a vital roadway in the interconnection of the Camden County (County) road network as it connects Route 70 to Evesham Road, White Horse Pike, and Haddonfield-Berlin Road. However, the roadway was confusing and raised safety concerns due to inconsistent cross-section grades and horizontal alignment.
As a result of the proximity of the existing nearby land uses, such as Cherry Hill East High School, Katz Jewish Community Center, Temple Emmanuel, and several residential neighborhoods, there was an opportunity to create an active pedestrian and bicycle corridor along Springdale Road. The project area clearly needed significant pedestrian access improvements to reach its full potential as a pedestrian corridor for various neighborhoods.
The objective of this project was to implement pedestrian, ADA, and traffic signal improvements to increase safety along one-mile corridor.
RVE was retained by the County to provide professional engineering and design services for multi-modal roadway improvements (Federal Project No. STP 4059 (102).)
The scope included:
- Curb Improvements
- Horizontal and Vertical Roadway Realignment
- Sidewalk Installation
- Bicycle Lanes
- Traffic Signal Modifications
- Signage and Pavement Markings
- Pavement Reconstruction/Resurfacing
- Safety Upgrades
- Utility Relocation
- Pedestrian Accessibility Improvements
- Multi-Modal Roadway Improvements
- Stormwater and Sanitary Sewer Inspections, Analysis, and Design
This Federal Aid Improvement Project included capacity improvements, as well as provided the basis for much-needed pedestrian accessibility in addition to multi-modal and safety improvements. Pedestrian, ADA, and traffic signal improvements were made and construction was conducted and finalized within a year.
Since the project’s completion, the flow of traffic and pedestrian safety has greatly improved throughout the corridor. In addition, the project has been recognized for several awards by the engineering community.
