NJ Turnpike Authority Puts Sharon Road Bridge Project on Hold
ROBBINSVILLE – (November 28, 2011) – Robbinsville Township Business Administrator and Engineer Tim McGough, P.E., announced today that after discussions with the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, contractors will not close the bridge portion of Sharon Road until all Windsor Road construction is completed sometime early next year.
“With West Manor Road also about to be closed we simply let everyone working on these projects know that closing three of our main roadways simultaneously was unacceptable,’’ McGough said.
Work on replacing the bridge on West Manor Way is scheduled to begin Friday and continue for approximately 18 months.
Although Sharon Road will be closed to through traffic for approximately 18 months at some point early next year in order to reconstruct the bridge, emergency vehicles will have access to the east side of Sharon Road via Route 130 to Windsor Road to Sharon Road.
The $2.7 billion project to widen the Turnpike began in 2009 and is approaching the midway mark.
