West Windsor to Hold Meeting on Old Trenton Road Bridge Replacement
Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh of West Windsor Township announced that representatives from the Mercer County Department of Transportation and Infrastructure will hold a meeting Thursday, July 14 at 7:00 PM in Room D (downstairs) of the Municipal Building to present plans of the Old Trenton Road (CR 535) Bridge replacement project and answer questions.
Plans for the replacement of the bridge over the Assunpink Creek call for a turn lane and signal controlled intersection with Robbinsville-Edinburg Road (CR 526) southbound and a turn lane at Edinburg Road northbound. The turn lane will allow the smooth movement of traffic as well as a queuing lane for those cars turning between the two signals.
Mayor Hsueh stated, “This Bridge is extremely old and needs to be replaced. Also, having cars sit idling in heavy traffic is not healthy for our environment or our residents who live in the Edinburg area. This project will help with that.”
The design provides a single lane in each direction with a dedicated left turn lane which, due to long queues of left turning vehicles at both intersections, would extend across the new bridge. The design is documented in the West Windsor and Mercer County Master Plans available at the Municipal building.
