Date:

Share post:

Somerset County will begin the reconstruction of River Road in Hillsborough north of the historic Elm Street Bridge and along the South Branch Raritan River on or about Monday, March 25. River Road will be closed between Elm Street and the River Road intersection for approximately eight months for the project.

The project includes widening of the roadway and construction of a large pre-cast panel retaining wall along the South Branch Raritan River designed to reduce erosion and stabilize the roadway. Also included in the project are drainage structures, guide rails, and underground utility relocation.
