Construction of Town Hall Expected to Begin This Week

Township manager Scott Carew said he also expects to hear from experts about whether the township should install a temporary crosswalk on Second Street.

More than a month and a half after ground was broken, construction of the new town hall complex is expected to begin this week. 

Township manager Scott Carew said Sambe Construction has received all the necessary permits to install the footings and foundation and indicated to him crews would be restarting work at the site this week.

"They have equipment on their way to the site as we speak," he said Monday. 

He also expected to receive an updated construction schedule today, which would replace the outdated one posted on the township website.

Sambe has 450 days to complete construction (weather-permitting), beginning when it received a notice to proceed recently. 

In addition to the updated timeline, Carew said he would be meeting today with engineer Jim Rudderman and Sgt. Randy Pugh, the Moorestown Police Department's traffic safety officer, to hear their recommendations on whether or not the township should install a temporary crosswalk for library patrons. 

Carew said if Rudderman and Pugh recommend adding a second crosswalk—for library patrons to safely traverse Second Street at the municipal lot—town council would have to vote to install it.

maybe patch can clarify but when the mayor promised to finish the town hall on schedule was she promising to complete the project on the "outdated" schedule or the soon to be uploaded schedule?

Accountability, To be honest, I'm not sure. My guess would be the latter, updated schedule, but I don't really know.

What is the update for the justice center? People in town want the police and courts back downtown

Interesting , pan fan wants a justice center? You mean combined police and court building? Is that what this town council will be putting at the library site? Any initial site plans or costs?
Any news? January 30, 2013 at 01:25 PM
Is there any update with crosswalks or the updated town hall schedule, or pan Fran's justice center plans

Interesting because other than patch, I haven't heard a single peep about the Justice League having to be downtown, nor a complaint about the current location. I really don't think anyone cares either way.

..we thinks of a justice center.. I guess of regan ass. Thinks that's a possibility , then would council act on such an idea? I bets that we took into account parking spaces for all the police vehicles, unmarked cars, judges car, and staff, handicapped, parking for the accused, lawyers cars, vendors, trash and recycling area for pickup , in and out access for police on the beat, etc. if that's met then let's talk design and costs if that's the will of those involved. Did planning board and zoning look into this justice center idea ?
