Quaker Road Opening Delayed Until April 1

Unexpected severe weather has extended the project- the road was expected to reopen by Feb. 18.

 

Quaker Road, which has been closed between Province Line Road and Mercer Road/Princeton Pike since August, 2012, is expected to reopen by April 1. 

The road was closed in order to reconstruct the bridge over Stony Brook. 

The road was expected to open by Feb. 18, but weather delays have changed the construction schedule, said Julie Willmot, spokesperson for Mercer County.

Contractor Marbro, Inc. requested an extension of time after Hurricane Sandy delayed the project about three weeks and historic flooding of Stony Brook prohibited work on the bridge span for another two weeks, Willmot said.

According to the contractor, they lost 20 days during Hurricane Irene (including preparations for the storm and cleanup afterward), 11 days in late December due to heavy flooding and four days in mid-January due to flooding.

This is causing an extra 30 minute commute for me everyday. It is costing me extra gas, wear and tear on the car and the residential roads are taking a beating.
