Amwell Road Project Starts Monday

County set to widen roadway between Willow and Woods roads.

Somerset County annunced a project to widen Amwell Road between Willow Road and Woods Road, and to add storm sewers, will begin Monday.

The initial phase of the work will be along the sides of the road, according to the county, primarily with no impact on traffic—but at times, drivers should expect lane closures.

This work is expected to take through the winter to complete (depending on weather), and once the widening work begins, traffic will be reduced to one lane between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Flagman will be directing trafic during the work.

The work is scheduled to be completed by November.

Goodbye to yet more of the rural nature of poor old Hillsborough. King car rules! Do you think there's any chance they'll put in a segregated bike lane? One thing I can guarentee- a wider road equals faster speeds. prepare for some solid hits on cars turning into and out of the residential and business driveways in the affected area.

I always thought the gas petal made the car go faster. I never knew it was the width of the road. This internet thing is something else; you learn something new on it every day. I myself will miss the smudges I always put in my underwear, when I hydroplane over that area of poor drainage there.

This is Awesome.....let's do construction on every main road in town so that traffic could become even more of a mess

How about we save the money and apply it to the 206 bypass? That has been one disaster after another.

Better drainage will be a good thing.

I don't really see the need to widen this section of road. Drainage? Now that would be nice, but if you want to widen a road, focus on 206 between Triangle & Brown.

I also am not sure what is wrong with the width of Amwell? Is it that they are adding shoulders but leaving the lanes the same width? And I am confused between "This work is expected to take through the winter to complete", and "The work is scheduled to be completed by November". The former statement implies it would be done by spring time and the latter says it won't be done until the fall. I guess either way, it wiill take "through" winter to complete but will it also take "through summer" and also "through a good part of fall"?

A zoning administrator must be familiar with the ideas behind the zoning code--the planning, environmental and transportation studies that generally precede adoption of a zoning code--the code language, and the legal processes incorporated in the code. Thanks. Regards, http://asaphi.ca/
