Lawrence-Hopewell Trail Pennington Connection

Hopewell Township, Mercer County, New Jersey

Van Cleef Engineering Associates was retained to provide construction administration, construction inspection and construction testing for this portion of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail, a multi-use trail system in Lawrence and Hopewell Township that, when completed, will be 22 miles long.

The project required installation of a large reinforced concrete retaining wall, large elliptical pipe culvert extension, porous pavement trail, decorative bike railing and guide rail. The project was funded by a FHWA grant through the Borough of Pennington. The project was a joint collaboration between Pennington Borough, Hopewell Township and Mercer County.

Van Cleef Engineering Associates provided full time inspection and all required FHWA and NJDOT documentation to complete the project.
