Friday, May 4 Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony will Mark the Completion of Improvement and Beautification Projects on Tanner Street
Haddonfield, NJ – April 25, 2012 – The Borough of Haddonfield will celebrate the completion of one of its biggest ongoing municipal projects, the reconstruction of Tanner Street in downtown Haddonfield, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, May 4, at 5 p.m.
The Haddonfield Commissioners will ceremoniously cut the ribbon, midway on Tanner Street, at 5 p.m. accompanied by Tanner Street business owners. Some owners will have samplings of their wares displayed curbside. The ribbon cutting coincides with Haddonfield’s monthly First Friday event taking place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on May 4, during which artists and entertainers line the streets downtown; and the shops and restaurants offer in-store events, promotions and refreshments.
Tanner Street has been undergoing extensive improvements over the last 48 months – the end result is a revitalized, beautified street with ample parking, fresh pavement and visitor friendly access.
Completed reconstruction projects include the replacement of older pipes and sewer infrastructures running along the length of the roadway; improved parking and pedestrian accessibility through the Euclid Avenue and Haddon Avenue intersection; new curb scapes, decorative street lighting and fresh landscapes.
