New Alexander Street Detour for Princeton University’s Arts and Transit Project Starts Oct. 16

detourStarting on Wednesday, Oct. 16, traffic along Alexander Street will be detoured onto a temporary road that will bypass the intersection of Alexander Street and University Place. This detour route will remain in place until February of 2014.

The current intersection of Alexander Street and University Place will be closed to traffic for the construction of a new traffic circle. Alexander Street will be closed from College Road south to just north of the new Princeton Station parking lot.

This newly constructed temporary bypass road will connect Alexander Street, from just north of the new Princeton Station parking lot, to University Place, east of Wawa.  The traffic signal at the intersection of College Road and University Place will be operational while the detour is in effect. This signal will go into “flash” mode beginning today Monday, Oct. 14. It will begin normal operation on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

There will be changes to pedestrian and bike paths during this phase of work. There will be no changes to rail service, bus service, parking, taxis and bike facilities during this phase of the arts and transit project. The Wawa will remain open and short-term metered parking will be accessible off of the bypass road.
