TRENTON — Mercer County
Executive Brian M. Hughes announced that the bridge on Old Trenton Road (County
Route 535) located between One Mile Road and Princeton-Hightstown Road in East
Windsor Township was reopened to the motoring public early this evening on
budget. Officially known as Mercer County Bridge No. 861.1, the structure
carries Old Trenton Road over a tributary of the Millstone River.
The Mercer County Department
of Transportation and Infrastructure began the bridge replacement project on
Aug. 1, 2019. In an effort to expedite completion of the project, Mercer County
employed Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) technology, which included use
of pre-fabricated components. Standard construction likely would have resulted
in a completion time of six to nine months. However, use of ABC enabled the
project to be completed in 106 calendar days despite weather-related delays and
unforeseen utility conflicts.
The previous structure
consisted of a single-span concrete-encased steel stringer bridge. The structure
was considered functionally obsolete due to substandard roadway width.
The replacement structure is 19-foot-6-inch clear span by 51-foot-6-inch-wide
single-cell culvert structure supported on two spread footings. The new
cross-section at the bridge consists of two 12-foot travel lanes, two 6-foot
shoulders and two 6-foot sidewalks.
Marbro Inc. of Long Branch was
the successful low bidder at $1,637,117. The contract was awarded on June 13,
ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. – (November 14, 2019) – Township Council Thursday voted unanimously to ban all “transient accommodations” – defined by state law as “a room, group of rooms, or other living or sleeping space for lodging of occupants, including, but not limited to residences or buildings used as residences.”
Ordinance 2019-48 means Robbinsville homeowners will not be able to list their properties for short-term rentals, such as through the popular Airbnb service. Council introduced the ordinance October 24 after a presentation by the Robbinsville Economic Development Advisory Commission (EDAC) led by Vice Chair Elizabeth Meyers two weeks earlier.
The state law does not apply to listing by real estate agents or brokers. However, municipalities can impose fees and taxes on local rental properties, in addition to state sales and use tax, if they were to permit use and collect the taxes.
