A new traffic circle on Alexander Street is slated to be opened on Jan. 26, a Princeton University representative told local officials tonight.
“The vehicular route through the intersection at Alexander Street and University Place will be restored as a roundabout,” said Kristin Appelget, the school’s director of community and regional affairs. “The soft opening will be January 26th, which is a Sunday. The road will be fully open for rush hour Jan. 27 unless there is another blizzard or major storm.”
A new pedestrian route will be opened in the area, and some parking will be reopened, Appelget told the Princeton Council at the regular public meeting tonight at town hall. More details and a map can be found on Princeton University’s website.
The Wawa will still be located on the corner of Alexander Street and University Place. The Wawa will not be moved until the new station is open. The new station and transit plaza are scheduled to open this summer. The arts buildings are slated to open in 2017.
