Alexander Street between Lawrence Drive in Princeton and Canal Pointe Boulevard in West Windsor will be reopened again about 10 days later than expected, a local official said on Monday night.

Deanna Stockton, the head engineer for the municipality of Princeton, said she received emails from county and state officials on April 1 informing her that the bridge projects will be completed by the end of the month. The road has been closed since the fall.

“Contractors have made tremendous progress,’ Stockton said. “They have done a lot of work to move the projects ahead, but they’ve faced delays with some of the underground utility work.” 

The state is replacing the bridge over the D&R Canal. The county is coordinating the replacement of the adjacent bridge across the Stony Brook and the replacement of a small culvert near the Metro North restaurant.
