TRENTON –The Milltown Road/N. Main Street (CR 606) on-ramp to Route 1 northbound in North Brunswick will be closed tonight, Sept. 9, NJDOT officials announced.
NJDOT’s contractor, J. Fletcher Creamer and Sons, is scheduled to close the ramp to traffic from 9 p.m. until around 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, to install a new drainage pipe and repave the ramp. The right travel lane on Route 1 northbound will be closed overnight as well. The following overnight detour routes will be in place for motorists destined for Route 1 northbound:
- CR 606 northbound motorists will be directed to Route 1 southbound to the Route 130 interchange back to Route 1 northbound.
- CR 606 southbound motorists will be directed to Carolier Lane to Route 130 northbound to Route 1 southbound to the North Oaks Boulevard exit to Route 1 northbound.
The $24.1 million project has replaced the structurally deficient Route 1 bridge with a wider structure over an abandoned Conrail line and two local access roadways in North Brunswick. The two connector roads beneath the structure have been converted to a single roadway. NJDOT is also repaving and making safety improvements on Route 1 between Milltown Road and Ryders Lane in North Brunswick.
The final Route 1 travel configuration in both directions on the bridge has been in place since late-July 2011. Final paving and striping operations on Route 1 in each direction, as well as College Farm Road, are scheduled for completion this fall.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org for construction updates and real-time travel information.
