Road Work on Washington Road

Washington Road RepairMercer County is repaving Washington Road/Route 571 between Route 1 in West Windsor and Faculty Road in Princeton beginning Monday, June 21. The work will take about 10 days and during that time, only westbound traffic will be permitted between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. (Traffic will flow in both directions at other times).



Mercer County notes that the entire roadway will be milled first, which creates a rough surface. Cyclists may want to seek alternate routes.

A decision has not yet been made whether the restriping will include a bike lane or just shoulders. Watch for updates.

    The COunty had promised to put bikelanes on 571 from PRinceton to the train station. Don’t let them renege on this one. This is a golden opportunity.
