The Township was recently notified by the state Department of Transportation that it would receive $250,000 to complete the reconstruction of Covered Bridge Road to the intersection of Forge Road. This heavily traveled local street is a vital piece of Cherry Hill’s 260 miles of local roadway connecting Route 70 to Kresson Road.
This will be a resurfacing and repair of Covered Bridge Road from Rt. 70 to Forge Road just before you cross the old Covered Bridge.
The covered bridge which crosses the north branch of the Cooper River will be 50 years old on Saturday, Valentines Day, February 14, 2009. The bridge was designed by the famed local architect Malcolm Wells. The bridge was dedicated 50 years ago when 101 couples kissed to commemorate the tradition of the friendship or "kissing bridge".
This Saturday at 11:30 am the Township will hold festivities with refreshments provided by Starbucks Coffee and Manhatten Bagel.
Following there ceremony, those attending will be given a coupon to receive 10% off at the following establishments in the Barclay Farm Shopping Center:
