NORTH BRANSWIK – Council President Bob Davis has assured residents that city officials continue to fight plans to replace the bridge to Adams Lane.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (DOT) will complete the reconstruction and replacement of the “superstructure” of the Adams Lane Bridge across the Amtrak, and construction will begin no earlier than June 25.

However, North Brunswick municipal officials are not happy with the details of the project. It is projected that this major transport infrastructure project will require the closure of all eastbound traffic between Routes 1 and Route 130 for approximately 19 months and will allow only one lane.

The official DOT detour is the 1/130 overpass. Traffic in the western direction between highways 130 and 1 will remain open.

DOT plans to host a Public Information Center about the project in May, and regular updates will be posted on the township website at

During a meeting of the township council on February 22, council members expressed dissatisfaction with the project’s plans.

During the March 7 meeting, Davis continued the discussion, saying he, Mayor Francis “Mac” Womak and council member Ralph Andrews met with CME representatives to discuss alternatives.

“We will continue to fight this because I don’t think there is anyone in our city or surrounding cities who wants this to happen,” Davis said.

Vomak clarified that officials are not discussing the need for the project, but how it is planned.

“Yes, the bridge definitely needs to be done, but 19 months of not having access to it between us, East Brunswick, Franklin and South Brunswick just doesn’t make sense,” Davis said.
