UPDATE: Route 1 Reopened; Route 130 and Route 27 Closed in South Brunswick
Nightmare continues on major roadways from storm damage.
Route 1 has been reopened in both directions, north and south after bring closed earlier Wednesday morning in South Brunswick.
Travel remains restricted through South Brunswick Township as various issues related to storm damage continue to plague major roadways.
Motor vehicle accidents blocked Route 1 Wednesday morning, utility poles are blocking Route 130, and major delays are being reported on all three roadways.
Police spokesman Sgt. Jim Ryan said township roads are unable to handle the increased traffic and reported motorists driving around barricades. To travel north-south through town may take up to two hours or more.
A snapped utility pole on Route 27 at Beekman Road closed the roadway Tuesday evening and completely limited north-south travel in South Brunswick. The only north-south route open in the township is the NJ Turnpike, police said.
Route 1 was closed in both directions between Beekman Road and Major Road Tuesday evening.
Route 130 is closed in both directions, southbound at Route 522, and northbound at Georges Road in Dayton. Police said the best alternate route is the NJ Turnpike, Route 535, or Route 27.
There is currently no east-west travel route in South Brunswick without a blockage. The best alternative is to take Route 1 north to Henderson Road or Route 1 south to College Road.
