Lees Ave Repaving Project

Anticipated Project Start: September 2023

Work will include: resurfacing, full depth reconstruction, concrete curbing, ADA compliant ramps and sidewalk and driveway improvements on Lees Avenue from Ventnor Avenue to Merrick Avenue. 


Resurfacing of Various Alleys

Location: Various
Anticipated Project Start: October 2023

This townwide project, which will take place between mid-October and late November 2023, is in response to resident requests to address alleys and smaller roadways throughout the Borough. Work will include the resurfacing of smaller alleys identified as in need of repair, but that would not typically qualify for grant funding. These small alleyways have been grouped together to address resurfacing needs across town as one large project. 

Work will include: various improvements including resurfacing, repairs, and the installation of ADA compliant ramps and curb cuts to several roadways in the Borough of Collingswood. The following roadways are included in this project: 

-Crestmont Lane (from E Madison Avenue to Dead End)
-Richey Avenue Alley (from East Atlantic Avenue to Dead End)
-Conger Avenue Alley (from Conger Avenue to Dead End)
-Laurel Avenue (from Woodlawn Avenue to Lincoln Avenue)
-Allen Lane (from Collings Avenue to Eldridge Avenue)
-Maple Lane (from Collings Avenue to Eldridge Avenue)
-West Narberth Terrace (from Park Drive to Dead End)
-Comley Lane (from Harrison Avenue to Comley Avenue)
-Pacific Avenue (from Pacific Avenue to South Park Drive)
-Cedar Avenue Alley (from Cedar Avenue to Dead End)
-Knight Park (from Park Drive to Browning Road)
-Coolidge Avenue Alley (from Edison Avenue to Dill Avenue)
-Haddon Avenue Alley (from Collings Avenue to Woodlawn Avenue)
-West Franklin Avenue (from Franklin Avenue to Park Drive)

Harrison Ave Water and Sewer Utility Improvements
Location: Harrison Avenue between Sloan Avenue and Route 130.
Project Start Date: Late Summer/Early Fall 2023
Anticipated Project Length: 2 months

Work will include:
-Installation of eight (8) inch cement lined ductile iron water main
-Replacement of the existing six (6) inch terracotta sewer main with eight (8) inch PVC.
-New main will be bored under Route 130 to connect to the east side of Harrison Avenue.  

Sewer replacement will improve flow from residents along the Sloan Avenue (from Magill Avenue to Harrison Avenue), Taylor Avenue (from Magill Avenue to Route 130), and the Crestwood Apartments.  It will also correct an issue with surcharge of the existing smaller main. The installation of the eight (8) inch ductile iron water main will connect two dead-end mains on the west side of Sloan and Taylor Avenues to create a loop.  This loop will improve water flow and pressure for the residents along the west side of Sloan Avenue and the Crestwood Apartments.  It will improve hydrant usage for fire suppression. 

Both main improvements would also support potential future development in the area.  Access to and from Route 130 will be limited at Harrison Avenue during the day for an anticipated two (2) week time period.  Residents of Comly Avenue will not have access to Comly Lane from Harrison Avenue for an anticipated two (2) week time period, early on in the project.
