Cumberland County begins N.J.-funded road improvements

    After experiencing delays to turn attention to flood-damaged roads, Cumberland County, N.J., has returned focus to its state-funded road improvement projects.

    The first project on tap, as the News of Cumberland County reports, is County Route 553 and 611/Centerton Road from N.J. State Highway 56 to Salem County in Upper Deerfield Township. The repairs have $1.2 million in federal backing and began yesterday.

    Fourteen other projects are slated for this year in Bridgeton, Millville, Vineland and nine townships.
