The Carter Road bridge replacement project is scheduled to be completed before the end of August, Princeton officials said Monday night.
Once the project is finished, work will begin on the replacement of the bridge over the Stony Brook on Route 206 in Princeton, which is the oldest bridge in the state.
Crews will work double shifts for six days a week to complete the 206 bridge replacement in about three months, Princeton Engineer Bob Kiser said. The work is expected to begin around Aug. 29 and end by about Dec. 8, he said.
The truck detour that is in place for the Carter Road project will remain in place for the duration of the Route 206 project, Kiser said. Cars will be detoured along Lovers Lane, Mercer Street and Hutchinson Road.
Officials expressed concerns that truck drivers will drive heavy trucks over the bridge over the Stony Brook on Mercer Street. They are working with the state to have CR583 signs removed that indicate that the road is a county road.
