Posted on May 28, 2020

Replacement of County Bridge No. D0303, Rt. 601 over Back Brook north of Grandview

The Belle Mead-Blawenburg Road (CR 601) Bridge, located approximately 500 feet north of the intersection of Grandview Road and 0.8 mile south of West Dutchtown Harlingen Road (CR 604), was fully closed to vehicular and pedestrian/bicycle traffic on Friday, April 17, 2020 at 8:45am.  At that time, the duration of this road closure was estimated at 4 weeks for completion of all construction work as one continuous operation.  However, operations are continuing for a period of time.

Somerset County Engineering has now announced that they expect this project to complete on or around Friday, June 12.  All schedule updates and information will be posted on the County’s website.

This project’s construction contract was awarded to Assuncao Brothers, Inc. on June 25, 2019.  The Pre-Construction Meeting will be scheduled in early 2020, as construction will not commence until April 2020.

A detour route is posted along Belle Mead-Blawenburg Road (CR 601), Route 206, and Georgetown-Franklin Turnpike (CR 518).  Local access will still be maintained.  The revised Detour Plan can be viewed here.
