Hillsborough Township Committee Announces Road Improvements

At the April 30th Township Committee meeting, the Hillsborough Township Committee approved a $9 million bond ordinance to fund improvements to various Township Roads. At the May 14th meeting, Mayor Robert Britting announced which roads would be repaired due to the bond.


The following roads are currently out for bidding and could be paved as early as the summer of 2024:


  • Fairfield Lane - Phase 2
  • Valinor Road
  • Hunt Club Road
  • Harford Place
  • Stonewain Street


In addition, Amsterdam Drive (Phase 3) will soon be going out to bid. The engineering department is waiting for NJDOT Local Aid approval of the revised plans prepared by Pennoni Associates. This is due to Somerset County paving the north end between Amwell Road and Schilke Lane. The Township cost after the grant is approximately $275,000.00.


The following roads will be going to bid this summer for paving by the fall:


  • Township Line Road (between Montgomery border & Belle Glades Lane)
  • White Meadow Road
  • Spring Valley Road(between White Meadow Road & Winding Way)
  • Pleasant View Road (between Amwell Road & AVM Park)
  • Camden Road
  • Auten Road (between RR & New Centre Road)
  • Starview Drive
  • Murray Drive
  • Ski Drive
  •  Dogwood Drive


Pennoni is preparing plans to repave Auten Road between the railroad and Triangle Road, which will be submitted to NJDOT Local Aid for approval. This work should be bid this summer for fall paving. The Township cost after the grant is approximately $315,000.00

The Engineering Department is also looking into utilizing high-performance chip seal or slurry seal on roads that meet the engineering requirements.

The estimated cost of all the above road improvements is 4 to 41/2 million dollars for 2024.

“We are pleased to be able to provide relief for residents and travelers who frequent those roads,” said Mayor Robert Britting.


“Our promise and commitment to address our infrastructure is steadfast and clearly apparent by this comprehensive road program,” said Committeeman Lipani.

The $9 million road paving project marks just the beginning of Hillsborough’s commitment to improving infrastructure. Additional road projects are planned for next year and beyond, ensuring continued improvement in safety and smooth travel on the Township’s roadways.
