PSE&G pole relocation necessary ahead of bridge work

New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced daytime lane and ramp closures on Route 130 in Hamilton, Mercer County for utility work as part of a bridge replacement project.

Beginning Friday, February 1, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., and continuing weekdays, Monday through Friday for approximately five weeks, PSE&G is scheduled to close one lane in each direction on Route 130 near the Crosswicks Creek Bridge.

The ramp from Route 156 southbound to Route 130 southbound also will be closed and detoured from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Local access will be maintained.

The closures are necessary in order for PSE&G to relocate utility poles in advance of a $7.2 million project to replace the Route 130 Bridges over Doctors and Crosswicks Creek in Hamilton and Bordentown.

The following Route 156 southbound detour will be in place:

• Motorists travelling on Route 156 southbound will be directed to turn left at the Church Street

• Turn left onto Route 156 northbound

• Take the jughandle at Klockner Road onto Route 130 southbound

Portable variable message signs are being utilized to provide advance notification to the public of all traffic pattern changes associated with the work.

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 for real-time travel information, and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info or on the NJDOT Facebook page.
