Route 22 and Chimney Rock Road Intersection Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
October 6, 2015Location: Bridgewater, New Jersey
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on October 6, 2015 on the site of the $62-million Chimney Rock Road and Route 22 intersection project in Somerset County, NJ. In attendance were representatives of JMT, Somerset County Engineering Department, NJDOT, Bridgewater Township, Somerset County Freeholders, The Louis Berger Group, Dewberry, GPI, and the contractor.
The ceremony celebrated the opening of Route 22 being depressed under Chimney Rock Road, which eliminated a railroad crossing on Route 22 express. This project allows, for the first time, for traffic to move across Route 22 from south to north. The project also included new ramps to access I-287 and Route 22. Several new signalized intersections will allow for future development along the Route 22 corridor in the near future.
JMT was awarded the project in 2010 and has been on site providing resident engineering and construction inspection services since 2012.
