Route 206 lane closure necessary this week
in Princeton

Utility and pavement tests required as culvert replacement
project advances

(Trenton) - New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced a lane closure on Route 206 this week as a culvert replacement project advances between Hillside Avenue and Arreton Road in Princeton.

Beginning at 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, December 8, NJDOT’s Engineering firm WSP USA, Inc., will close Route 206 northbound between Herrontown Road and Ewing Street to perform utility and pavement tests adjacent to the existing culvert. This preparatory work is required for the permanent replacement of the culvert. One travel lane on Route 206 will be maintained with alternating traffic directed by flagmen.

In September, during a scheduled inspection, a more than 100 year-old 14-foot culvert located on Route 206/State Street between Hillside Avenue and Arreton Road in Princeton was identified as being in need of replacement. Temporary steel plates have been installed and paved over until a new culvert can be manufactured and prepared for installation. NJDOT will be providing updates as the culvert replacement work advances.

Portable variable message signs will be installed to provide advance notification to motorists of traffic pattern changes associated with the work.The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weatheror other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info.
