NJDOT announces a spillway replacement on

Route 206 at Atsion Lake in Shamong Township

(Trenton)- Commissioner Kris Kolluri today announced that the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will install a new spillway and guide rails on Route 206 at Atsion Lake in Shamong Township, Burlington County.

“The Route 206 Atsion Lake project will increase safety, improve the fish habitat and enhance the historic spillway,” said Commissioner Kolluri.

NJDOT will replace the existing wooden spillway with a concrete spillway, replace the bridge parapets, pave the spillway approaches on Route 206, and install new guide rails. NJDOT will also install a fish ladder, which will allow fish to travel from the lower water elevation downstream. In addition, the historic gear mechanisms that control the existing timber gates will be salvaged and displayed on the retaining wall.

On August 18, traffic will be shifted to the northbound shoulder to install concrete construction barriers on the southbound shoulder. One lane will be maintained in each direction throughout construction. From September 16, 2008 to May 14, 2009, single lane closures may occur on Mondays through Thursdays from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day, on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. the next day, and from Sunday at 8 p.m. to Monday at 6 a.m. The $2.1 million project is slated for completion in September 2009.

Real time travel and construction information is available online at www.511nj.org for emergency information.
