ROUTE 70 is a major thoroughfare through our town and of importance locally and regionally. Traffic on and around the highway impacts our neighborhood directly and indirectly. GKCA remains committed to limiting the impact of pass-through traffic on our community. In 2004, NJDOT published a "Route 70 Concept Development Study", which included the following NJDOT graphics of the Kingston/Westgate and Covered Bridge/Frontage Road intersections with Route 70: 
        [NJDOT Graphic 1: Kingston/Rt. 70]     [NJDOT Graphic 2: Covered Bridge/Rt. 70]

Official reports and documents on 2021 construction projects were to have been posted as they become available from officials. Visit ROUTE  70 for historical information on modification proposals and community input and reaction to proposals.

     2022:     Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention Tips      Bike Theft Prevention Tips

Lock It or Lose It - Follow these tips to help protect you from being a victim. Theft from vehicles are most often crimes of opportunity in which a thief sees an easy target. Reduce the chances that a criminal will want to break into your vehicle by taking some preventative steps.
  • Lock your car anytime you park.
  • Use theft deterrent systems such as car alarms or anti-theft device, as they can be an effective deterrent.
  • Always park in well-lit, well-traveled areas. This helps deter thieves because the car and anything inside is more visible. Keep the exterior of your residence well-lit.
  • Remove all loose items of value such as loose change, cell phones, laptops or tablets, jewelry, handbags, etc. whether at home or another location.
  • Contact police if you see someone acting suspiciously. If it looks out of the ordinary to you, do not hesitate to call the Cherry Hill Police at 856-665-1200. Remember you can remain anonymous when you call.

Residential Security Camera Program - Do you have a doorbell camera or an outdoor surveillance system? These systems have proven helpful while investigating crimes that have occurred not only at the residence, but in the immediate area. 
  • The Cherry Hill Police Department is inviting any resident that maintains their own security system to send us an e-mail at including your name, address, and a contact phone number or e-mail where you can be reached in the event a criminal investigation is initiated in your area. 
  • The Investigative Unit would maintain a confidential log of those residences with surveillance systems and if contacted, you can decide if you would be willing to provide access to any images or videos.
