New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced overnight lane closures on Route 29 starting tonight as a pavement preservation project begins in Ewing and Hopewell, Mercer County and Lambertville, Hunterdon County.
Beginning at 8 p.m. tonight, Friday, August 19, until 9 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, August 20, and continuing nightly, Monday through Friday, NJDOT’s contractor, Asphalt Paving Systems, Inc., is scheduled to close a single lane on Route 29 between Route 175 in Ewing, Mercer County and Weeden Street in Lambertville, Hunterdon County to apply a slurry seal.
