The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is committed to developing transportation improvements that effectively balance transportation needs, environment, community concerns, and costs. NJDOT is holding a Public Information Center to inform local residents, officials, and the business community about the Bordentown Avenue (CR 615), Burlew Place and Eugene Blvd Interchanges project. You are encouraged to actively participate by attending the meeting and providing comments at the meeting, via mail, or by email.
The Public Information Center will be held on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, at the Borough of Sayreville Municipal Building, Council Chambers, located at 167 Main Street, Sayreville, NJ 08872 from 6pm to 8pm. You will have an opportunity to review exhibits of the proposed project, ask questions, and discuss any concerns with NJDOT staff members. If you are unable to attend but are interested in learning about this project, please contact us at the telephone number of email address listed below.
The project area is located at the Route 9 interchange with Bordentown Avenue at MP 128.99. This interchange provides access between the two roadways via two unsignalized intersections at Burlew Place and Eugene Boulevard. A Problem Statement for the interchange was submitted by the Sayreville Borough Engineers Office indicating that conflicting traffic movements at the unsignalized intersections along Bordentown Ave have resulted in numerous crashes and contributed to safety issues in the project area. The purpose of this project is to address the safety and operational deficiencies at the interchange to improve safety for the traveling public.
The Preliminary Preferred Alternative for the project includes the following:
A roundabout is proposed at the Bordentown Avenue intersection with Kenneth Avenue to help reduce crashes at that intersection.
Burlew Place will be realigned slightly to intersect Bordentown Avenue just west of the roundabout.
A new slip ramp is proposed from Route 9 southbound to Bordentown Avenue westbound.
A roundabout is proposed at the Bordentown Avenue intersection with Eugene Boulevard.
Deceleration lanes are proposed on Route 9 for the Route 9 southbound off-ramp and the Route 9 northbound off-ramp.
An acceleration lane is proposed on Route 9 for the ramp from Bordentown Avenue to Route 9 southbound.
An outside shoulder is proposed along Route 9 northbound between Bordentown Avenue and the Garden State Parkway to improve access to businesses.
Preliminary Engineering and Final Design are scheduled for 2020-2023. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2023.
