Quaker Road is Closed for the Next Six Months
Mercer County officials closed the road on Monday, Aug. 20 to begin bridge repairs.
Mercer County officials on Monday closed Quaker Road between Province Line Road in Lawrence and Mercer Road/Princeton Pike in Princeton Township.
The road will be closed for six months, through mid-February, 2013, while crews work to rebuild the bridge over Stony Brook.
Local traffic from Princeton Pike to the Friends School, Updike Farmstead (Historical Scoiety of Princeton) and private residences north of the bridge will be allowed.
Commuters should make alternate travel plans, remembering that the NJ Department of Transportation on Aug. 4 restricted left turns and U-turns on Route 1 on Washinton Road and Harrison Street for a 12-week pilot project to improve traffic flow along Route 1.
