ROAD WORK UPDATE 6-14-24

HAINES MILL ROAD – The PSEG Overhead team is working on Haines Mill Rd. Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.  They are setting poles, pulling in new wire, and transferring existing construction to new poles. The supervisor expects two more weeks of work to be completed by the week of June 24th, weather permitting.

HARTFORD ROAD RESURFACING (MOORESTOWN) – Burlington County is resurfacing a portion of Hartford Road. Be prepared for traffic delays as the resurfacing takes place.

Pavement milling and overlay work will include a 2.6-mile section of Hartford Road, also known as County Route 686, between Route 537 in Mount Laurel and Garwood Drive in Moorestown. The work is expected to take about two weeks to complete.

Traffic will be maintained through the work area, but motorists using the road will likely experience delays and are advised to seek an alternative route.

Black Rock Enterprises is doing the work on Hartford Road and is part of the County’s annual road resurfacing program.

HARTFORD ROAD RESURFACING (DELRAN) – Beginning the week of June 24th, 2024, PSE&G crews, and our approved contractors, will begin restoring the roadway along Hartford Road between Pear Tree Court and Ashley Drive. Work hours will be nighttime between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m., Monday through Friday.

The paving activities are an estimated two weeks, weather permitting. PSE&G will work with local police departments on any traffic and/or parking adjustments to minimize inconvenience. We appreciate your patience and support as we improve the reliability of your electric service in your neighborhood and the region. 

If you have any questions about this project, please call the project information line at 1-800-606-0045.

What Can Be Done? Call 911

CALL 911

When you call 911, Delran officers are dispatched and will attempt to locate the source of the noise and then determine the appropriate Philadelphia Police District to report the issue. The appropriate Philadelphia police district’s desk sergeant is notified and can dispatch Philadelphia officers to investigate.  Unfortunately, Philadelphia police response time can be delayed if the call does not come from another law enforcement agency.

It took many different approaches before this process was worked out and there is no easy solution to this issue since it crosses state lines. Our New Jersey state legislature has passed a law to outlaw boom cars, but that only applies in NJ. 

We did have two boom cars come into Delran several months ago. They were met by Delran police shortly after they arrived and several citations were issued. They have not returned.

Trash

To clarify the process for trash pick-up: You can use the cans that are either provided or purchased from the Township or your own can, as long as they are the type and size of can that is able to be picked up by the automated arm.

However, if your can is damaged, you will be provided with a can either from the township or Republic. It will be the style of can that was received by you, or purchased by you if you purchased an extra can. It will not be replaced with the same type or brand of can that was damaged.

The township-provided cans are high quality and designed for the type of automated pick-up used by Republic. If you wish to have a second trash can, we suggest that you purchase the can from the township. It is $60.00 and will be delivered to your home. Please contact Linda in the Public Works department at [email protected]

Please leave your trash cans at the curb until your trash is collected.

If your trash collection is ever missed on your scheduled day you should:

  • Leave your cans out at the curb if they are not emptied.
  • Report a missed collection, email [email protected] at Public Works.

Please be aware that Public Works closely monitors the situation and reports all issues to Republic and the township administration. Not only are we holding the trash company accountable for missed collections, but we have also been diligent in assessing fines to the trash company when they do not meet the contracted obligations.

NOTE: Posting on Facebook is not reporting to the township. To report a missed collection, email [email protected] at Public Works.

Please visit here often for additional information regarding the ongoing Municipal Solid Waste collection issues.
