West Windsor Township Awarded Grant for Penn Lyle Road Work

Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh is pleased to announce that the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJ DOT) has awarded West Windsor Township $200,000 for work planned for Penn Lyle Road.  As part of the Fiscal Year 2008 Municipal Aid Program, the NJ DOT received 835 applications for aid totaling more than $237 million for the $78.75 million available from the Transportation Trust Fund (TTF).

The application submitted was for a project referred to as Penn Lyle Road – Phase I which will provide for milling, overlay, and drainage improvements as necessary as well as widening of the section of Penn Lyle Road between Village Road West and Westwinds Drive.  The road will be striped with 12 foot travel lanes and 6 foot wide shoulders in both directions to improve bicycle and pedestrian access.  No right-of-way acquisition will be required for these improvements.

The entire project is anticipated to cost $360,000.  As part of the project, the Township will also conduct a speed survey and evaluate passing zones to determine if any adjustments are warranted.  In addition, potential sidewalk extensions and pedestrian crossings will also be evaluated.  The Township will be looking at high visibility crosswalks where appropriate.

Mayor Hsueh stated, “The proposed widening will expand the Township’s network serving pedestrians and cyclists by tying into existing bikeway connections such as the recently completed PSE&G pathway, New Village Road bike lanes, and numerous local neighborhoods.  We do not consider this just a road resurfacing project but one that helps us to serve the residents who walk and bike in the area.”
