Alert: Quakerbridge Road Bridge Repair

Road work sign

Please be advised that on or about Monday June 17, 2019, emergency bridge repairs are scheduled to commence on the Quakerbridge Road Bridge (Bridge No. 5-780.1) over Amtrak in the Townships of Lawrence and West Windsor.  The bridge deck has been deemed structurally deficient to the extent that parts of the deck, headers, deck joints, approaches and both sidewalks need to be repaired immediately.  Anticipated duration of this project is 15 calendar days, weather permitting.  The contractor for this project is Underground Utilities Corporation.

Due to the nature and extent of repairs, the county must close one lane in each direction on a 24/7 basis.  Since repairs will need to be completed on the full width of the structure, Quakerbridge Road would be reduced to a single travel lane in each direction with traffic shifted depending on the proximity of the work area.  Mercer County will post signs prior to the start date advising motorists of the upcoming construction. Expect delays.
