TRENTON, N.J. - The Mercer County Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is scheduled to open the bridge carrying Windsor Road over Assunpink Creek in Robbinsville Township where the road crosses the Assunpink Creek.

Officially known as Bridge #940.2 on Windsor Road, the structure is located 0.13 miles north of the intersection of Windsor Road and Sharon Road.

The original structure was 42’ long concrete encased steel stringer bridge constructed in 1919. The bridge was rated as structurally deficient with a sufficiency rating of 47.4 out of 100.

The new structure will support two 11-foot wide travel lanes, two 3-foot wide shoulders, a four-foot wide concrete sidewalk on the west side of the bridge and 4-bar open steel bridge railings. The overall length of the new structure will be just over 45 feet and the overall width will be just over 35 feet.

The new bridge consists of a pre-stressed concrete voided slab beams on driven timber pile supporting cast-in-place reinforced concrete abutments and wingwalls. Four modular retaining walls were constructed along Windsor Road at the four corners of the bridge.

The Mercer County Freeholder board approved the award of bid to the Lucas Construction Group on May 24. The cost of the project was $948,561.50 and it was funded through NJDOT Local Aid funds.
