The Route 22 Sustainable Corridor Improvements Project will develop long-term improvements to Route 22 in Bridgewater between the Route 202/206 and Interstate 287 interchanges. This section of Route 22 carries approximately 88,000 vehicles a day and reports approximately 270 crashes per year. Some sections of the study area experience crash rates five times the statewide average for similar roadways.
Residents, commuters and anyone interested in helping to shape corridor improvements are encouraged to attend the public meeting to learn more about the project and provide their input.
There also is a project website – www.route22corridor.info – that provides an easy-to-use interface where residents can gain information on the progress of the study, be kept informed about upcoming events and provide feedback to the project team.
The Route 22 Sustainable Corridor Long Term Improvements project is being administered by Somerset County with funding provided by the Federal Highway Administration and the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
