TRENTON PAVING BEGINS

Trenton – Crews will begin paving on Routes 3 and 230 in Trenton starting November 1 and continuing through November 15. Because warmer temperatures are required for paving, this work will take place during daytime hours. Although crews will avoid peak commuting hours, motorists should plan for delays and consider carpooling. In order to complete as much work as possible, crews will also work overnight to prepare the road surface for daytime paving. Daytime paving should be expected Monday through Saturday.

Work will be suspended over the Veterans Day weekend from Saturday night, November 10 until Tuesday morning, November 13. The $ 2.3 million project includes reconstruction of one-tenth of a mile of Route 230 and six-tenths of a mile of Route 3 in the vicinity of Route 230 in Trenton. To improve safety and traffic flow, the intersection of Routes 230 and 3 has been redesigned to include a new traffic signal and turning lanes.
