The project consists of a pavement preservation technique known as a slurry seal. It is a thin pavement overlay designed to extend the life of the existing pavement. This project will be done at night between the hours of 8:00 PM and 5:30 AM. The first part of the process consists of striping modifications to the existing roadway. The next part, done approximately one (1) week after the striping modifications, will consist of a slurry seal application over top of the existing roadway. The road will be closed during this second stage, but resident and emergency access will be allowed.
The following roads will be slurry sealed:
• Belle Mead - Blawenburg Road (Route 601) from Route 206 to Grandview Road in Montgomery Township
• South Branch Road (Route 625) from River Road (CR 625) to Beekman Lane in Hillsborough Township
• Allen Road (Route 652) from Somerville Road to Martinsville – Liberty Corner Road (CR 525) in Bernards Township

Current Schedule (Posted 9/14/20):
Working Hours 8:00PM-5:30AM for Slurry Seal Pavement Preservation:
Mon 9/14- Tues 9/15- South Branch Road (Route 625) from River Road (CR 625) to Beekman Lane in Hillsborough Township
Wed 9/16- Allen Road (Route 652) from Somerville Road to Martinsville-Liberty Corner Road (CR 525) in Bernards Township
Striping changes will be made on Allen Road as part of this project. The striping changes include a road diet along Allen Road between Somerville Road and Martinsville – Liberty Corner Road (CR 525), which will convert the existing four-lane roadway segment to a three-lane segment consisting of two (2) through lanes and a center, two-way left-turn lane or a dedicated center left-turn lane.
