West Windsor Police are advising motorists to expect delays on Princeton-Hightstown Road due to road reconstruction over the next few months.

The project calls for the milling and resurfacing of the road between Rabbit Hill and Old Trenton roads. Work is anticipated to be completed by May 6.

One half of the road will be worked on at a time while maintaining one lane in each direction on the other half of the roadway. Construction is slated to occur between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Work will also take place on Saturdays through 4:30 p.m.

“It is highly recommended to find an alternate route of travel so as to minimize the impact on your daily commute,” said David Barberich, department administrative communications officer.
