NJDOT Project – Deck Replacement and Resurfacing of I-295 Ramps to Route 1: The NB ramp (towards Quakerbridge Mall and Princeton) is open; however, the ramp to Route 1 SB (towards the Brunswick Circle and Trenton) will remain closed for approximately eight weeks. Southbound Route 1 traffic is being detoured on I-295 SB Exit 65A (Sloan Avenue) in order to U-turn and travel NB back to Exit 67B to access Route 1 southbound. Please use caution in this area.
Carter Road is expected to be open to traffic on or about January 23, 2017, weather permitting.
The traffic pattern on the Route #1 project now goes up to the Brunswick Circle. Motorists should use caution and be aware of the lane shifts between the Brunswick Circle and Lake Drive.

Lawrence Township Eco-Waste Collection Program: Lawrence Township continues to offer an optional recycling program that allows residents the opportunity to compost their organic waste.
