Route 33 Bridge Repairs Continue

Route 33 bridge construction resumes in Hightstown Saturday

Construction on the Route 33 bridge in Hightstown will resume Saturday evening, Dec. 1, resulting in overnight single lane closure, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

The project came about after the bridge sidewall buckled during Hurricane Irene in August, 2011, allowing water to pour into the downtown. Berto Construction Inc. was hired to complete the work, which was estimated to cost $655,000.

According to NJ DOT spokesman Tim Greeley, an oil tank was discovered during construction, begeting work that was not originally included in the construction schedule.

Crews will begin with tank removal at 9 p.m. on Saturday, continuing through the night until 7 a.m. Sunday. Work will resume Monday, Dec. 3 and continue through Friday, Dec. 7., from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Milling and Paving could commence the following week, thus completing the project.
