Princeton Engineering Department Thanked for Cherry Valley Work
To the Editor:
Especially in this month of Thanksgiving, I want to call out a special thanks to our Princeton Engineering Department, our municipal engineer Deanna Stockton, and her very good staff as well as others involved, including our Princeton Police Department, for the complex work in getting the previously hazardous Cherry Valley Road reconstructed so beautifully.
This was not only a complex engineering project with dangerous side deep trenches on a narrow, winding, hilly road and a rough surface, it was complex in that Cherry Valley Road is the border between Princeton and Montgomery Township as well as Mercer and Somerset counties.
All levels of government; the state, two counties, and two municipalities had to be involved in the funding and complex coordination.
I also want to thank our Mayor, Liz Lempert, who helped to push the funding, etc. when that slowed things down considerably on this nine-month work project. It is now a safe pleasure to drive on Cherry Valley Road.
I know that our municipal employees and our mayor hear various complaints. I’m glad to be able to shout out a big Thank You! for a job very well done along with many others, such as reconstruction of Valley Road, making it much more attractive and functional.
