Chimney Rock Road North to be Closed Aug 25, Traffic Shift Expected For Several Months
SOMERSET COUNTY, NJ - On Monday, August 25, Chimney Rock Road Northbound and Southbound traffic is expected to be shifted slightly to the east in the vicinity of the recently reconstructed and widened portion of the Chimney Rock Road bridge over Route 287, just north of the Chimney Rock/Union Avenue intersection.
This traffic shift will be in place for several months to allow for the reconstruction of the western half of the bridge superstructure.
However from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, August 25, the Chimney Rock Road Northbound lane heading towards Route 22 Eastbound will be closed.
Detour signs will be posted and Bridgewater police will assist with traffic control and maintaining Chimney Rock Road Southbound traffic. This lane closure is required for project-related underground utility work.
Route 22 Eastbound traffic turning right onto Chimney Rock Road Southbound will continue to use a temporary exit-only right turn lane for approximately 6 to 8 weeks. Construction is currently being performed for the proposed Route 22 Eastbound Express and Local roadways, roadway/bridge widening along Chimney Rock Road between Route 22 Eastbound and Union Avenue, and various overhead and underground utility relocations. All local businesses along Chimney Rock Road and Route 22 Eastbound are fully accessible to the travelling public during construction.
