Alexander Road Bridge

Project Description

The structure is located on Alexander Street (Princeton) / Alexander Road (West Windsor), on the border of West Windsor Township and Princeton. The existing structure constructed in 1948 consists of a three-span, simply supported, timber stringer type bridge carrying a timber deck overlaid with asphalt and continuous, rolled steel beams below each 6’ wide timber sidewalk. The existing structure carries one travel lane in each direction and no shoulders.

The existing structurally deficient bridge is being replaced with a single-span bridge consisting of a concrete supported deck on reinforced concrete abutments. The outer edge of the structure and concrete wingwalls will feature a wood façade. The roadway configuration will be two (2) 12’ lanes, two (2) 5’ shoulders and two (2) 5’ wide timber sidewalks with concrete curbs. The project is being coordinated with local stakeholders as well as the D&R Canal Commission, NJ Water Supply Authority, NJDEP State Historic Preservation Office - D&R Canal State Park.

Construction staging is being coordinated with separate, adjacent projects by Mercer County with a full detour of Alexander Road (primary detour route consisting of Faculty Road, CR 571 Washington Road to US Route 1).

The project design was single phase (no Preliminary Engineering) accelerated design and the construction phase is also accelerated to combine detour with the County projects and to minimize impacts to the traveling public and local stakeholders including D&R Canal State Park users.
