West Windsor Schedules Opening of Meadow Road
West Windsor Township Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh is pleased to announce that Meadow Road, after a year of closures, is scheduled to open Friday, June 4, 2010 in the afternoon.
The Meadow Road Reconstruction Project Phase I extends Meadow Road to the Carnegie Center Connector Road and Meadow Road Overpass eliminating the old curvature of the road. In addition, the project included the reconstruction and widening of Meadow Road from the Presbyterian Church, in front of Duck Pond Park, out to Carnegie Center Drive. The project also included the installation of a new gravity sanitary sewer line from the Meadow Lane apartments to Clarksville Road. This sewer line will service the garden apartment complex under construction on Clarksville Road, and represents the first phase in the eventual decommissioning of the Duck Pond Run pump station. The flow for this gravity line will feed into the D and R Canal Interceptor.
The existing Old Meadow Road, coming from Route One to the Meadow Lanes apartments, will end in a cul-de-sac for access to the apartments. The remaining old Meadow Road will be preserved as a service road.
A sidewalk on the east side of Meadow Road, from Carnegie Center Drive to Bear Brook Road, was included, as was striping for dedicated bike lanes from Carnegie Center Drive to a point south of the Estates at Princeton Junction development. A future project will extend the road widening and bike lanes south to the Clarksville Road intersection.
The reconstruction of the Meadow Road – Clarksville Road intersection, which will result in a signalized intersection with dedicated turn lanes, is currently under the obligation of the same developer building the garden apartments on Clarksville Road. That intersection work has begun and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Mayor Hsueh stated, “This major road reconstruction project will benefit our residents and all who travel through West Windsor. This is one of a number of old, out-dated roads and intersections being improved by West Windsor to carry all of today’s traffic modes -- especially for pedestrians and cyclists.”
