Posted on July 5, 2017

The New Jersey Department of Transportation has announced that starting 12:01 a.m. on July 6, 2017, US Route 206 will be completely closed in both directions at the Stony Brook (at Quaker Road) in Princeton for the replacement of two bridges.  The closure is expected to last 120 days, into the fall months.  A regional truck (over 4 tons) detour and a local detour for vehicles under 4 tons per the below linked maps (on the Princeton website). Local access will be maintained for residents and businesses on Route 206, including the Hun School.

The work is scheduled to close Route 206 in both directions near the Stony Brook Bridges between Lovers Lane and Carter Road in Princeton to allow for the reconstruction of the Stone Arch Bridge and the adjacent Flood Channel Bridge.
