City of Camden TIGER 1 Streetscape Improvement


 


An off-street greenway for pedestrians and cyclists is one highlight of the $6.6 million City of Camden Tiger 1 Streetscape Improvement project, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. HAKS provided construction management/inspection services for this multi-jurisdictional project for the City of Camden, New Jersey, that significantly completes an integrated, multi-county bicycle-pedestrian network. The overall goal of the project was to increase options for non-motorized accessibility between Camden County, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and to beautify and improve the trail corridors in Camden and promote crucial economic development.

The first segment implemented an improved trail linkage along Pearl Street with a bulkhead on the south side of the Ben Franklin Bridge to ensure stable roadway conditions for the project, adjacent to Rutgers University and Campbell’s Field. The second segment runs to New Camden Park and expands the existing greenway trail developed by the Camden Campbell’s Revitalization Area (CCRA). The Pine Street project connects the multi-use, off-street greenway trail of the CCRA project between Haddon Avenue and new Camden Park, among them streetscape upgrades, signage, landscaping and roadway improvements.

Martin Luther King Boulevard from Fifth Street to Waterfront was improved in the third phase. The pedestrian and bicycle urban pathway between downtown Camden and the Camden waterfront was upgraded with new stormwater facilities and improved roadways to Camden Greenway trail. The project limits stretch down Martin Luther King Boulevard from the west side of Fifth Street through Wiggins Park’s promenade.

HAKS was responsible for completely managing the project for conformance with NJDOT-approved plans and specifications. The HAKS team conducted full-time construction inspection services, periodic site and safety meetings, and completed all required FHWA and NJDOT reporting documents on behalf of Camden County.

The project received the ACEC New Jersey Distinguished Award.
