Working Hours: 7:00AM-4:00PM

Somerset County has design efforts underway to reconstruct Washington Valley Road, CR 616, because of several operational problems contributing to traffic accidents along the corridor and roadway condition maintenance. The goals of the road work are to make the road safer and more effective by improving intersections and adding shoulders to aid with accident avoidance, aid in turning movements onto side streets and driveways, and to carry storm water to a new storm sewer system. The improvements will address roadway deficiencies such as severe vertical curvature and steep slopes at side streets that impact line of sight, lack of shoulders, irregular pavement cross slopes, and storm runoff collection that increase the risk of motor vehicle accidents.

This project consists of the construction of approximately 1.3 miles of roadway reconstruction and associated drainage work. Curbs are to be installed along both sides of the roadway. The proposed roadway width is 30’ to provide for two lanes, each 11’ wide, and two paved shoulders; each 4’ wide. The roadway will widen to 38’ wide at the intersection of Vosseller Avenue for the addition of a left turn lane. Minor curbline changes and a new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Chimney Rock Road to replace the substandard signal that now exists. This new signal will have the ability to be actuated by vehicles sitting in the turning lanes and have pedestrian crossing signals installed.
