of Transportation Project
from Cleveland Avenue in Trenton to Paxson Ave Extension in Hamilton
The New Jersey
Department of Transportation will be resurfacing Route 33 from Cleveland Avenue
in Trenton to Paxson Ave Extension in Hamilton. The work is expected to
commence on or about February 1, 2021 and last about a year until completion.
The project will
include electrical work (traffic signals), concrete work (curbing, sidewalk,
ADA ramps), milling, paving, landscaping, and striping. There will be traffic
control during the work operations; either lane shifts, detours or alternating
traffic as needed for the work involved.
Please note that
all work is weather dependent. Updates will be given as they are received from
the State. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information website www.511nj.org for construction updates and real time travel information.
UPDATE 2/24/2021: NJDOT Officials announced today the start of a pavement rehabilitation and improvements project requiring daytime should closures on Route 33. Beginning at 7 am tomorrow, Thursday February 25th until 5pm, NJDOT's Contractor, Trap Rock Industries, is scheduled to close the shoulder of Route 33 in sections as part of a moving operation between Cleveland Avenue and Paxson Avenue. These closures will allow the contractor to 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.
UPDATE 2/19/2021: The new
projected start date of this project is February 25, 2021. The Project will
start with traffic shifts for electrical, concrete and landscape work.
Alternating traffic patterns will be used when needed.
UPDATE 2/3/2021: Per DOT, this project has been postponed due
to inclement weather
