Cherry Valley Rd. Open from Cherry Hill to Province Line Rd.

Posted on January 18, 2019

The bi-county bridge carrying Cherry Valley Road over a Branch of Bedens Brook at the Princeton-Montgomery border reopened to drivers Thursday afternoon on budget and ahead of schedule.

The full replacement of the bridge was announced in August and construction began on Oct. 22, 2018 with a 90-day completion date, according to the Mercer County Department of Transportation and Infrastructure.

The original bridge went over a branch of Bedens Brook in Princeton and Montgomery Township and consisted of a single span, reinforced concrete slab on concrete/masonry abutments.

The structure was considered structurally deficient and was replaced with a prefabricated, three-sided concrete culvert supported on spread footings. The new bridge supports a 46-foot-wide cartway and a 5-foot-wide sidewalk along the north side. The cross section at the bridge consists of two 12-foot travel lanes, one 12-foot and one 5-foot shoulder, and four-rail bridge railings.
