For the second time in less than a week, county and municipal officials activated a new traffic signal at one of the county's busiest intersections. The signal, located at Route 9 and Delilah Road in Pleasantville, was officially turned on at 11 AM on Friday, August 2, just three days after a signal was activated at the redesigned intersection of English Creek and West Jersey Avenues in Egg Harbor Township.
According to County Executive Dennis Levinson, a steady increase in traffic volume has made it necessary for the county to reconstruct some of its busiest intersections. "Widening the intersections and installing left turn lanes helps reduce delays and enhance the safety of our motorists," he explained.
A $526,000 contract for the Pleasantville intersection improvements was awarded to Winzinger Construction Company of Egg Harbor Township. Funding for the project was provided through the state Department of Transportation Local Aid Fund.
