Mercer County will begin construction to improve Old Trenton Road between Princeton Hightstown Road (Route 571) and the East Windsor and Cranbury border bridge, beginning on Oct. 15, barring the weather, East Windsor Mayor Janice Mironov announced.
The work, which is expected to take approximately 2 weeks to complete, includes underground storm sewer pipe repairs and roadway resurfacing.
During actual work hours, , Old Trenton Road will be closed to all traffic, except emergency vehicles and residents living on Old Trenton Road, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The road will be fully open at other times and on the weekends, Mironov said.
Residents who live on One Mile Road will be impacted by limited access to Old Trenton Road during the construction hours. These residents can drive south on One Mile Road toward Princeton Hightstown Road. Residents traveling toward West Windsor can then proceed right onto Princeton Hightstown Road. Residents traveling toward Cranbury can then proceed left onto Princeton Hightstown Road, then left onto Route 130 North. Since work will start near the bridge and continue in the direction of Princeton Hightstown Road, right turns from One Mile Road onto Old Trenton Road should be permitted within two to three days after construction begins, according to the mayor.
