Utility work

Lately, there seems to be some question as to when the city of Camden will finish some of its downtown infrastructure projects. The project to which many seem to be referring is something called “Project Blackhawk,” which has been underway for a couple of years now and encompasses an area of downtown Camden between Lyttleton Street and the Kendall Mill village and involves placing utilities underground as well as resurfacing streets and replacing/repairing/installing curb, gutter and sidewalks. 

As it turns out, they are nearly finished. In fact, city public works officials say the city’s part of Blackhawk should be completed by the end of the year; readers can get more details in a brief update by Senior Writer Martin L. Cahn in today’s C-I.  

We certainly understand impatience. No one likes to see messy, torn up streets. No one likes to navigate through construction zones. These types of large scale projects, with complex objectives and multiple entities involved, can take some time and effort to coordinate, but the end result will be well worth the wait. 

We appreciate the public’s patience and the city’s efforts. When it’s all done, Camden will reap big benefits for a long time to come.
