Regarding the ongoing Springdale Road work: left turns from Morris Drive onto Springdale northbound will be temporarily prohibited from 6 am through about 12 pm Friday 9/30/2016, pending weather cooperation. Should rain conditions preclude the short-term intersection work, this temporary restriction will be in effect during the same time frame on Monday 10/03/2016.
A message board has been placed by the contractor on Morris Drive advising motorists to use Heartwood Drive to Lark Lane to access Springdale northbound. Alternatively, Heartwood Drive may be taken out to Kresson Road, and a right turn onto Kresson Road to access Springdale Road northbound.
Beginning on or about Monday 10/24/2016, Springdale Road northbound will be CLOSED TO ALL TRAFFIC at Evesham Road, extending through the end of the work zone at Lark Lane/Wilderness Drive. Southbound traffic will use the northbound lane due to the southbound lane being impassable from construction. The intersections with Chateau Drive and Cunningham Lane will be closed during these work times. Morris Drive and Spring Road traffic will only be able to go south on Springdale -- no northbound travel will be possible. Local access to the ShopRite store and the Holly Ravine Shopping Center will be permitted. All other Springdale Rd/White Horse Rd northbound traffic will be detoured onto Evesham Road, to Cropwell Road or to Haddonfield-Berlin Road to get around the work area.
This detour will be in place from about 7am through about 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday, for about three weeks. Emergency vehicles responding to calls for service within the closed area will have northbound access via radio communication to police officers in the work zone. The restrictions will be lifted at the end of each daily work period and through the weekends. This altered traffic pattern should conclude the bulk of major road work on this project.

Want to know more about this year's candidates for the Cherry Hill Board of Education? The Cherry Hill Zone PTA will host a Candidates' Forum, moderated by the League of Women Voters, on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at Rosa International Middle School. Doors will open at 7 pm.

Seven candidates will vie for three open seats on the Cherry Hill Board of Education. The candidates will be running for three-year terms in the November 8 School Board election.
In ballot order, the candidates running in this year's election are: Ruth Schultz, Ian Morris, Edward Wang, Steve Robbins, Fredrick Dande, Joseph Gerace, and Jane Scarpellino.
On September 15 at Cherry Hill High School East, 63 charter members, pictured, were inducted to the school's newly minted Science National Honor Society (NHS).
Current seniors and Science NHS co-presidents Kaitlyn Boyle and Kevin Chen approached faculty adviser Alex Falat last year with the idea of starting the chapter. East was accepted as chapter #1222 due to the strength of its courses, clubs and science teams.
Members must possess a 3.25 GPA (out of 4.00), be taking an honor level science class during their junior year (and achieving an A in it) or an AP level class (with an A/B grade in the class). Members also must have a clean discipline record.
During the application process, students also agree to perform 10 hours of service. East Science NHS members plan to perform this service by returning to their elementary schools on "Science Day" and performing demonstrations for the elementary students to peak their interest in science.
Other East Science NHS officers are Eric Kim, Vice-President; Holly Seybold, secretary; Dana Yi, treasurer.
