Latest Update: Reconstruction of County Route 637, Readington Road from CR 620/637 to Harlan School Road, Readington Township, Hunterdon County and Branchburg Township, Somerset County.

Once the pole is removed the contractor, Konkus Construction, says they can close the road the following day and get underway with the bridge demolition. We anticipate the closure will occur this week so we will keep everyone posted as to the date. The variable message boards in the field will be updated as soon as we know the date of closure.

Reconstruction of County Route 637, Readington Road from CR 620/637 to Harlan School Road, Readington Township, Hunterdon County and Branchburg Township, Somerset County.

Please be advised that we have been notified that Konkus Construction anticipates beginning some construction work on Readington Road the week of Jan. 16, 2017. They will be installing silt fence and removing tree stumps over the next couple of weeks.

PSEG gas, along with their sub-contractor Roman E&G, is continuing gas main and service relocations.

JCPL today began the installation of utility poles. They expect about a week or so to get the new poles installed and then other aerial utility companies will need to begin wire transfer operations.

Major construction activity will begin in March 2017 with an anticipated full road closure in mid-March 2017.  That road closure is expected to be for 3 to 4 months with a road opening occurring in late June 2017 or early July 2017.  Construction will then continue for another 1-2 months with work being performed with daytime lane closures.

The road will be open for the weekend of the Balloon Festival for the last weekend of July 2017.  Due to the shutdown on the project, the completion date will change from July 2017 to October 2017.

The County will send out an update on this project to the public via its website and will provide updates as necessary.

This is a County construction project and inquiries should be made to the County at (908) 231-7024.
