PISCATAWAY, NJ — Middlesex County officials marked the completion of a $10 million Stelton Road improvement project with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Ethel road intersection on Saturday.

“I cannot thank the Board of Chosen Freeholders enough for working with us hand in hand to get this over the finish line,” said Piscataway Mayor Brian Wahler. “It took a lot of time and effort to get this project finished, and it has culminated in a very safe road where people can walk, bike, and travel.”

The improvements to the 6,350 stretch of Stelton Road from Ethel Road in Piscataway to Kilmer Road in Edison included widening the corridor to include two 12-foot travel lanes, two 8-foot shoulders, and a 12-foot dual left center turning lane.

“The project is part of Middlesex County’s Capital Improvement Master Plan, a systematic program to maintain our critical infrastructure,” said Freeholder Director, Ronald Rios at the May, 2018 groundbreaking ceremony.

“The Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders is committed to making transportation safer throughout the county,” said Deputy Freeholder Director Charles Tomaro. “By improving certain areas and making new additions, we are keeping our infrastructure strong and safe including on Stelton Road.”
