NJ Society of Municipal Engineers
Project of the Year
While it was once predominantly a farm town, Plainsboro Township has realized significant residential and commercial development over the last three decades. Although the Township has successfully improved it's transportation infrastructure to accommodate that growth, it's close proximity to U.S. Route 1 has resulted in significant traffic with origins and destinations outside of the Township, particularly on Scudders Mill Road and Dey Road, both of which are Middlesex County roadways.
Recognizing the need to accommodate this traffic at the intersection of these major arterial roadways and the uncertainty of the future construction of proposed Route 92 by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority which was anticipated to have accommodated a portion of this traffic, the Township commissioned Township Engineer David J. Samuel, P.E., P.P., C.M.E. to develop a plan to address the Township's traffic concerns.
UNIQUE OR UNUSUAL DESIGN FEATURES:
Through the efforts of Township Engineer David Samuel and the intergovernmental cooperation of Plainsboro Township, Middlesex County and the State of New Jersey, this vital major arterial intersection has been improved to serve residents and commuters for years to come.
