Route 202 southbound to be resurfaced
in Hunterdon County
More than six miles of deteriorated pavement to be improved between East Amwell and Lambertville
(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced a project to resurface more than six miles of Route 202 southbound from south of CR 514 (Old York Road) in East Amwell to the vicinity near Headquarters Road in Lambertville, Hunterdon County.
NJDOT’s contractor, Arawak Paving Inc., began preliminary construction activities including site mobilization and sign installation last week and initial milling operations began earlier this week near the Route 31 interchange in East Amwell.
The $2.6 million project will mill and resurface Route 202 southbound with a new surface course of asphalt pavement from milepost 6.8 in East Amwell through West Amwell to milepost 0.4 in Lambertville. This concentrated effort to repair the deficient roadway will improve motorist safety and extend the pavement lifespan along the full width of the roadway at each location, including all travel lanes, turn lanes and shoulders. The project also includes concrete surface repairs to the bridge structures over CR 605/Alexauken Creek in West Amwell and over Route 179 in East Amwell.
Construction will be performed during overnight and off-peak hours in order to minimize traffic impacts on Route 202, a major commuter route carrying an average of over 14,600 vehicles through this stretch each day. The project, which was designed in-house by NJDOT engineers, is scheduled for completion in early-fall 2013.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org real-time travel information.
