Necessary safety work will require road closure and detours

(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced Stelton Road will be closed and detoured this weekend for railroad crossing signal work north of I-287 in Piscataway, Middlesex County.

Beginning at 7 a.m., Saturday, July 13, until 7 p.m., Sunday, July 14, Stelton Road will be closed and detoured in both directions at the railroad crossing approximately three-quarters of a mile north of I-287 Exit 5.  The following detours will be in place:

South Washington Avenue southbound detour

  • Motorists traveling southbound on South Washington Avenue will be directed to turn left onto Carlton Avenue
  • Turn right onto New Brunswick Avenue to Stelton Road

Stelton Road southbound
