Word from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is that the $7,100,000 project will cover five miles between Halls Mills Road and the western merge of Business 33 and Manalapan Brook.

You can expect to see crews from Earle Asphalt Company on the shoulders in various spots this week, repairing guard rails and installing signs. Remember that failing to slow down in reduced-speed zones entails a doubled fine.

Perhaps the most significant uprgade are new image-detection cameras at various intersections, replacing the underground detectors that trigger changes in traffic signals.

Among the other components, according to NJDOT, are new striping, upgraded overhead signs and curb ramps that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Once resurfacing begins, NJDOT officials said, work will be carried on at night and involve single-lane closures. In spots where highway is only a two-lane road, they’ll set up alternate traffic patterns. In other words, one side or the other will stop for a few minutes to let the other side through.

Officials anticipate completion by Fall 2014. NJDOT maintains traffic information at
