HAMILTON, NJ -- Area motorists who travel the busy Route 33 corridor in Hamilton should be prepared for delays on Thursday. The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) announced on Wednesday that Route 33 daytime shoulder closures will be required roadway improvement project begins between 7:00am and 5:00pm on Thursday.
According to DOT, this is the start of a pavement rehabilitation and improvements project requiring daytime shoulder closures of Route 33 in Hamilton between Cleveland Avenue and Paxson Avenue as part of a moving operation undertaken by the agency's contractor, Trap Rock Industries, that will install construction signs.
At least one lane of traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times.
Following the installation of construction signs, additional shoulder and lane closures may be required in the coming weeks to allow for tree trimming and vegetation removal. Milling and paving is expected to begin in spring 2021.
In addition, the $6.8 million improvement project includes milling and paving, traffic signal replacement, and construction of Americans with Disabilities (ADA) compliant curbs and ramps on approximately four miles of Route 33. The project is anticipated to be complete by Winter 2021. The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors.
Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic information website www.511nj.org, or NJDOT on Twitter or Facebook for construction updates and real-time travel information.
