Part of Route 27 to be closed overnight through June for road work; Upcoming Distracted Driving Enforcement and Education Campaign Patrols

Route 27 Closure:

On or about Monday March 27, the water main rehabilitation project that started last year is expected to resume again on Route 27 between Route 518 and Promenade Boulevard. 

This project is required to repair aging infrastructure and continue to provide a reliable supply of safe drinking water to the southern part of Franklin Township. 

The project will require Route 27 to be closed between Route 518 and Promenade Boulevard on weeknights from 8PM to 6AM. 

Emergency vehicles, residents, and visitors will have access to homes and businesses within the closed area during this time. Through traffic will be detoured. 

This project is expected to be ongoing through June. 

Traffic patterns may change during the course of the project; however drivers should expect a road closure between 8PM and 6AM for most of the project. Detours will be posted. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes and avoid the area if possible.  Use caution when traveling in the area.

Distracted Driving Enforcement and Education Campaign Patrols - UDrive. UText. UPay.:

Law enforcement officers from the South Brunswick Police Department will be cracking down on distracted drivers during the month of April as part of New Jersey’s UDrive. UText. UPay. enforcement campaign.
Beginning April 1 and running through April 21, the high visibility law enforcement initiative will target motorists who engage in dangerous distracted driving behaviors such as talking on hand-held cell phones and sending text messages while driving.
“Distracted driving is possibly the most serious safety issue on our roadways today,” said Eric Heitmann, Director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.  "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2015 alone, 3,477 people were killed in distracted driving crashes and an estimated 391,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.” 
In New Jersey, driver inattention was listed as a contributing circumstance in 52 percent of the state’s crashes in 2015. Driver inattention was in fact listed as a contributing factor in crashes at a rate nine times higher than that of the next highest contributing factor (speed).
The campaign is being carried out during the month of April, which the National Safety Council has designated as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The New Jersey campaign is modeled after similar successful high visibility enforcement programs such as Click It or Ticket and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
