CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. -

Camden Mayor Frank Moran is calling on public safety officials and traffic experts to come up with solutions to flooding issues in the city.

Moran has called on various agencies to come together to develop solutions to address flooding along Camden's major roadways that occurred as a result of all the recent heavy rain.

According to American Water, this year the city has received 56 inches of rain compared to 33 inches in 2017.

The recent flooding caused significant delays along the Admiral Wilson Boulevard, Interstate 676, and surrounding city streets.

The city and its partners are looking at short, mid, and long-term engineering solutions that can be implemented to mitigate excessive flooding in the city’s downtown and neighborhoods.

Moran stated while the city cannot control the weather, they will do their best to collectively inform the public about better routes and transit options.
