Full Closure of Rt. 518 Bridge at D&R Canal near Rocky Hill

Posted on July 6, 2016

The second phase of the bridge replacement over the D&R Canal on Route 518 began Wednesday, July 6.

Route 518 will be closed 24/7 to all traffic in both directions at this location starting at 7 a.m. on July 6 and is expected to remain closed until Aug. 5. Work has been halted by NJDOT due to the state transportation fund shut-down.  Check newer postings for updates.  Detours will be posted; however motorists are encouraged to avoid the area if possible as delays are expected, especially during rush hours. Rocky Hill businesses will remain open and accessible from the Route 206 side of the closure.

This is a New Jersey Department of Transportation project.  The construction schedule and length of closure is weather-dependent and subject to change.  Motorists are advised to use caution in the area and allow for extra travel time.
