Route 35 southbound ramp right lane onto CR 516/Cherry Tree Farm Road and Taylor Lane closed this week in Middletown
Final configuration will create a four-way intersection to accommodate traffic
(Trenton) – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials today announced lane closures on the Route 35 southbound ramp to CR 516/Cherry Tree Farm Road in Middletown, Monmouth County.
Beginning at 7 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, August 13, until, 12 a.m. Friday, August 14, the developer’s contractor, CJ Hesse, is scheduled to close the right lane on the Route 35 southbound ramp to CR 516/Cherry Tree Farm Road in order to realign the ramp.
When traffic re-opens on Saturday, August 15, a new traffic pattern on the Route 35 southbound ramp onto CR 516/Cherry Tree Farm Rd and Taylor Lane will be in place. Motorists traveling on Route 35 northbound wishing to proceed to Cherry Tree Farm Road will be able to continue to take the ramp right next to the New Monmouth Diner onto Cherry Tree Farm Road.
After this phase of the project, work will include milling and paving, replacing electrical structures, and restriping of Route 35 in both directions between Laurel Avenue and Cherry Tree Lane/Old Country Road. When the project is completed, it will create a new fully signalized four-way intersection, which will enhance safety. The entire intersection improvement is expected to be completed by winter 2020.
The precise timing of the work is subject to change due to weather or other factors. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT’s traffic website www.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info and on the NJDOT Facebook page.
