Section of Quaker Road closed indefinitely due to storm damage

Quaker Road between Mercer Road and Nassau Park Boulevard remains closed due to damage from Tropical Storm Ida.

There is a sinkhole in the road, and the road has also sustained other damage.

Deanna Stockton, the municipal engineer for Princeton, said there is currently no estimate on when the road will be repaired and reopened.

“We are currently assessing the situation, reaching out to various partner agencies, and formulating a repair strategy,” Stockton said.

On Saturday, Planet Princeton made calls to every police department in the region to find out what roads were still closed. A police dispatcher in Princeton, where dispatch was outsourced a few years ago, told the reporter that all roads were open again in Princeton, including Quaker Road. After we published the information, a few readers informed us that Quaker Road indeed still was closed. We apologize for any inconvenience to readers who received the wrong information and attempted to drive on Quaker Road. We were also unable to provide accurate information for Montgomery on the weekend because the police dispatcher there did not have accurate information about road closures and told us all roads were open there. A spokesperson for the township did not respond to an email asking for updated information.

In Montgomery as of Sept. 8, Hollow Road above Camp Meeting Road, Burnt Hill Road between Skillman Road and the Montgomery Lower Middle School, Dutchtown Zion Road, and Grandview Road between Hollow Road and Pin Oak are all still closed.
