NJDOT to resurface Route 184 in Middlesex County
(Trenton) - NJDOT officials today announced that Route 184 will be resurfaced in Woodbridge Township and Perth Amboy in Middlesex County.
“NJDOT is committed to maintaining our transportation network in a state of good repair,” NJDOT Commissioner James Simpson said. “Investments such as this project improve motorist safety and provide a smoother, more comfortable ride.”
NJDOT’s contractor, Defino Contracting Co, has begun preliminary operations to prepare the roadway for resurfacing this week. Route 184 carries two travel lanes in each direction. Resurfacing operations will require single lane closures on Route 184 in both directions during overnight and off-peak hours. One lane of Route 184 will be maintained in each direction at all times during construction. Periodic overnight ramp closures to/from the highway will be necessary.
Route 184 is a 1.37-mile long highway that runs from the terminus of CR 501 (King Georges Road), just west of the Garden State Parkway, in Woodbridge to the interchange with Route 35 in Perth Amboy. This $2.4 million state-funded project will mill and resurface the entirety of the highway in both directions. Deck patching and surface repairs will be made to the Route 184 bridges over the Garden State Parkway and over Route 9, as well as the Route 184 eastbound structure over Route 440. New guide rail and ADA-compliant ramps will also be installed at locations along the highway.
The project is scheduled to be fully completed in early 2012.
Variable message signs will be used to inform motorists of traffic pattern changes during construction. Motorists are also encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website for construction updates and real-time travel information.
