There’s good news if you travel Route 206 in Somerset and Morris Counties. The New Jersey Department of Transportation has launched a major resurfacing and repair project along a six-mile stretch of the highway.

DOT crews will be milling and repaving deteriorated sections of roadway in the follow locations:

  • Route 206 in both directions from near Center Street (milepost 78.58) in Bedminster – through Peapack-Gladstone – to the vicinity of the Lamington River (milepost 85) in Chester Township.
  • Throughout the entirety of the Route 206/202 Somerville Circle interchange with Route 28 in Somerville, including all approach roadways.
  • The cross widths at three local roadways and their approaches to Route 206 will also be resurfaced. Lamington Road (CR 523) in Bedminster, Holland Avenue (CR 661) in Peapack-Gladstone and Pottersville Road (CR 512 in Peapack-Gladstone.

Transportation officials say the almost $5 million project will improve motorist safety and extend the pavement lifespan along the full width of the roadway at each location, including all travel lanes, turn lanes, shoulders and median openings.

They also point out the work will be performed while maintaining at least one travel lane in at each location during peak period travel hours.  In addition, access to all businesses will be maintained. The work is expected to be completed by the fall of 2013.
