NJDOT opens reconstructed Salem Street bridge
over Route 10 in Randolph
(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced that the newly reconstructed Salem Street (CR 665) bridge over Route 10 was reopened to traffic at around 1:30 a.m. this morning in Randolph Township, Morris County.
The overpass, which provides access from Route 10 eastbound to Salem Street northbound and from Salem Street southbound to Route 10 eastbound, had been closed for reconstruction since March.
NJDOT’s contractor, Konkus Corporation, has replaced the old structurally deficient bridge superstructure, including the bridge deck, support beams, median pier cap and parapets. The reconstructed structure has been raised slightly to improve clearance beneath the bridge.
The $2 million federally funded project is also making improvements at the Route 10 intersection with Franklin Road, located to the east of the Salem Street overpass. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2012.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. NJDOT provides emergency roadway information, construction schedule updates and real time traffic information and images at www.511nj.org
