Somerset County is conducting a Concept Development Study for the Griggstown Causeway (CR 632) and its surrounding area. The Causeway connects River Road (CR 533) in Montgomery Township to Canal Road in Franklin Township and crosses the Millstone River, D&R Canal Park and the Delaware and Raritan (D&R) Canal. The Study Area includes the roadway network around the Causeway, including the following intersections:
- River Road (CR 533) and Griggstown Causeway (CR 632)
- Canal Road and Griggstown Causeway (CR 632)
- Canal Road (CR 632) and Bunker Hill Road (CR 632)
Also included in the Study Area is Somerset County Bridge No. F0302, a one-lane truss structure that crosses the Millstone River. A Study Location map can be found here: Study Location Map
The purpose of the study is to evaluate current traffic conditions to determine if changes need to be made to improve safety and mobility by addressing general safety concerns, vehicular crashes, traffic congestion and sight lines.
Work efforts for this study will include performing data collection and data analysis as well as developing an alternatives analysis, soliciting public input and preparing a Concept Development (CD) Report.
