4 I. INTRODUCTION A. Roadway Characteristics Within the limits of the proposed project, Route 33 functions as an Urban Freeway. There are two primary typical cross sections within the limits of the project. They are: Milepost 24.2 to Milepost Route 33 consists of two 12-foot travel lanes, a 3-foot minimum and variable inside shoulder and a full 12-foot wide outside shoulder in each direction between these mileposts. Milepost 28.4 to Milepost Route 33 consists of one 12-foot travel lane, a 3-foot minimum and variable inside shoulder and a full 12-foot wide outside shoulder in each direction between these mileposts. The eastbound and westbound roadways are separated by a 30-foot wide grass median. Median guide rail exists in limited location, but for the most part, the median is unprotected with regard to cross-over incidents. Route 33 is constructed as an umbrella section throughout the project limits. There are four (4) interchanges within the limits of the project. They are: Route 33 and Wemrock Road - milepost Route 33 and County Route 537 (Freehold Mt Holly Road) - milepost Route 33 and Route 9 - milepost Route 33 and Route 79 (South Street) - milepost Acceleration/Deceleration lanes exist at all ramps exiting and entering Route 33 at the interchanges. B. Purpose and Need Statement Purpose The purpose is to rehabilitate the pavement surface to improve the service life of the roadway. Need This section of Route 33 has been identified by the Pavement Management System and the Pavement & Drainage Management office as being in need of rehabilitation. Goals and Objectives Within the limits of the project, both in the eastbound and westbound directions, the existing pavement exhibits various types of cracking and deterioration. Based on the most recent pavement assessment, the mainline pavement conditions vary from very poor to good. The condition of the shoulders within the limits of the project varies from fair to good. Therefore, based on the overall pavement condition, the Pavement Management System has recommended the milling and resurfacing of the pavement surface. C. Project Location and Project Limits The proposed project is located in the Townships of Manalapan and Freehold, Monmouth County. The proposed limits of the project are milepost 24.2 to milepost 28.9 in the eastbound direction and milepost 24.3 to milepost 28.9 in the westbound direction.
5 A location map and the applicable Straight Line Diagram pages are provided in Appendix B. D. List of Other Projects in the Vicinity A review of all applicable databases has indicated that there is only one project within the vicinity of the proposed pavement project. This is a project to replace an existing overhead sign structure on Route 33 westbound at milepost There are no other projects in Concept Development, Preliminary Engineering, Final Design or Construction in the vicinity of the proposed pavement project that would have an impact on the proposed project. Coordination between the overhead sign structure replacement project and the proposed pavement project will be required. II. EISTING CONDITIONS ANALYSIS A field trip was conducted on June 10, 2010 to assess the existing conditions of the pavement and to ascertain other features that could potentially have an impact on the delivery of the project. This field trip was attended by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) of the New Jersey Department of Transportation. Based on discoveries made during this field trip and subsequent follow-up, several issues, which will be addressed as part of the project, were identified. The following provides a summary of the key issues: A. Pavement Mainline Route 33 consists of flexible bituminous pavement throughout the limits of the project with the exception of short sections at the western end of the project where the pavement is composite. The thickness of the bituminous pavement in the travel lanes, in the areas of flexible pavement, ranges from 8.5 to 12 in both directions. The shoulder thickness ranges from 3 to 4.8 in the eastbound direction and from 4 to 5 in the westbound direction. The areas of composite pavement consist of 6 flexible bituminous pavement over an 8 thick PCC slab and are located as follows: Eastbound - milepost to milepost Westbound - milepost to milepost The Route 33 mainline pavement exhibits 0.25 to 0.50 rutting, L/M block cracking, scattered fatigue cracking, transverse cracking and L/M longitudinal cracking between lanes. The pavement condition along the mainline lanes varies from very poor to good. The shoulder pavement exhibits scattered L/M transverse, longitudinal, fatigue and block cracking. The shoulder pavement condition generally varies from fair to good. B. Structures within the Project Limits There are thirteen (13) structures within the proposed limits of the pavement project. These structures are characterized as follows: Route 33 traverses two (2) local roadways via structure total of four (4) separate structures exposed concrete decks Route 33 Eastbound over Route 9 - milepost 27.54
6 Route 33 Westbound over Route 9 - milepost Route 33 Eastbound over Route 79 - milepost Route 33 Westbound over Route 79 - milepost Four (4) local roadways cross over Route 33 exposed concrete decks Route 33 Eastbound Ramp to Route 33 Business milepost Wemrock Road over Route 33 - milepost CR 537 over Route 33 - milepost Willowbrook Road over Route 33 - milepost Five (5) culverts exist within the limits of the project. Culvert #1 - milepost Culvert #2 - milepost Culvert #3 - milepost Culvert #3 - milepost Culvert #4 - milepost The deficiencies in most of the structures range from spalls in the headers with deteriorated asphalt patches, missing sections of deck joint steel angles, missing guide rail, no guide rail attached to the parapet, and damaged or missing guiderail spacers. In addition to the thirteen (13) bridges/culverts, there are six (6) overhead sign structures; two (2) on the eastbound side and four (4) on the westbound side of Route 33. Individual Structure Inventory & Appraisal [SI&A] Sheets for all structures are provided in Appendix D C. Drainage Route 33 is constructed as an umbrella section throughout the project limits. Curb and inlets exist along the ramps at the five interchanges. Records obtained from the Pavement & Drainage Management office indicate that within the past five (5) years there were five (5) reported incidents of flooding due to clogged inlets in the area of the ramps. The inlets were cleared by Maintenance, resolving the problem. D. Traffic Control within the Project Limits Route 33 within the limits of the project is an urban freeway; therefore, there are no signalized intersections within the limits of the project. E. Utility Facilities For the most part, there are no aerial facilities within the limits of the project. The exceptions to this are: At the beginning of the project [milepost 24.3] there is a mix of utility poles and street lights. Street lights exist on the Route 33 acceleration/deceleration lanes and ramps located at the County Route 537, Route 9, and Route 79 interchanges. F. Access Route 33 within the limits of the project is an urban freeway without any business, residential access points or driveways.
7 G. ITS Facilities There is no ITS conduit or above ground ITS components along Route 33 within the limits of the proposed project. H. Geometrics Eastbound and westbound each have two (2) 12-foot wide lanes and a 12-foot wide outside shoulder. Mainline Route 33 is separated with a 30-foot wide grass median. Based upon review of existing As-Built plans and SME field investigation of the project site, no significant cross-slope, ponding or settlement issues were evident. I. Community Concerns Route 33 is a freeway section without business or residential access. There are a few residential communities that are adjacent to Route 33. Therefore, the concerns of the community should be limited to work hours (noise) and lane closures during construction (inconvenience). J. Environmental Concerns Based on the environmental screening, the only potential environmental concern could be impacts within the floodplain of the Manalapan Brook Tributary A (milepost 24.32) and the Debois Creek (milepost 28.55) K. Management System Input In addition to the Pavement Management System, the following Management Systems have been cross referenced: Safety Management System: The crash rate for this section of Route 33 exhibits relatively safe crash record (1.46 crash/mvm) as it is below the 2009 statewide average (2.12 crashes/mvm) for roadway similar cross section. Bridge Management System: no issues with any of the structures within the limits of the project. Congestion Management System: The priority rating for the length of the project on the Congestion Management System (CMS) is Low except at M.P , which is rated Medium. Drainage Management System: The project has no ranking in the Drainage Management System of the Drainage Unit s 2010 list. L. Pedestrian and Bicycle Facilities Route 33, within the project limits, is a freeway section with no pedestrian or bicycle facilities. III. ALTERNATIVES ANALYSIS A. Alternatives Analysis Narrative This section of Route 33 has been identified by the Pavement Management System and the Pavement & Drainage Management office as being in need of rehabilitation. The pavement
8 condition of mainline Route 33 varies from very poor to good, indicating the need for either a mill x pave x+1 treatment or a complete reconstruction of the pavement box. The Department hired YZ Consultants, Inc. to conduct a pavement evaluation and service life analysis. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD), Coring and Visual Survey were performed as part of the pavement evaluation efforts for this project. The pavement evaluation and the service life analysis performed by Advanced Infrastructure Design, Inc. indicates that a mill x - pave x treatment throughout the limits of the project will provide a 10-year plus pavement life. A no-build alternative was considered but did not address the project need of extending pavement life and meeting the Department s Pavement Management System goals. Based on the cost of reconstructing the entire pavement box and the service life attained through the mill x pave x treatment, the full reconstruction option was not considered. Therefore, the preferred alternative selected for advancement is a mill x - pave x resurfacing project. The depth of the milling and paving varies 2 to 4 depending on location. Specifics of the Pavement Design Recommendation can be found in Appendix C. IV. PRELIMINARY PREFERRED ALTERNATIVE A. Scope of Work i. Pavement - The scope of work, within the proposed limits of work, is to resurface Route 33. The pavement recommendation for this work varies from milling 2 to 4 and paving 3 to 5 in the mainline lanes. The recommendation for the outside shoulder is a straight mill 2, pave 3. The maximum increase in pavement section at all locations is 1. The recommendation for the ramps to and from the local roads varies from milling 2 to 3 and paving 2 to 4. The maximum increase in pavement section on the ramps is 1. The increase of 1 in the profile will allow for improvements to be made to existing cross-slopes as necessary. See the Pavement Design Recommendation for specific limits of the various treatments. The Pavement Design Recommendation is provided in Appendix C. ii. Structural - Since the Project Need, as identified by the Management Systems, is the resurfacing of Route 33 and the ramps at the interchanges, and since the Bridge Management System did not identify any issues with any of the structures within the limits of the proposed project, the structural scope of work will be limited to deck patching the mainline Route 33 structures over local roads. Deck Patching of the following structures: Route 33 Eastbound over Route 9 - milepost Route 33 Westbound over Route 9 - milepost Route 33 Eastbound over Route 79 - milepost Route 33 Westbound over Route 79 - milepost 27.69
9 iii. Pedestrian and Bicycle Facilities - Route 33, within the project limits, is a freeway section with no pedestrian facilities. This section of Route 33 is currently full bicycle compatible and will remain so after construction. There are no new pedestrian or Bicycle facilities planned within the limits of the project. iv. Traffic Signal - There are no signals within the limits of the project. v. Incidental Roadway Work - The scope of work shall include the upgrade of all guide rail within the limits of the project. In addition, median guide rail cross-over protection shall be added to the project where warranted. vi. Drainage - No new drainage facilities will be constructed based on the input from the Drainage Unit and the Drainage Management System. B. Anticipated Impacts to Existing Facilities i. Utility - There are no anticipated utility impacts. ii. Access - There are no anticipated access impacts, as Route 33 within the project limits is a freeway section with no business of residential access. iii. ITS - There are no anticipated ITS impacts as there are no existing ITS facilities within the limits of the project. C. Maintenance of Traffic During Construction The milling and paving of Route 33 will be completed using standard single lane closure or lane shifts. The approved lane closure schedule, as developed by Traffic Operations South, is provided in Appendix F D. Community Concerns The proposed improvements were presented to the local officials and received a favorable response. The community, local officials and property owners will be further consulted and apprised of the proposed work as Final Design progresses. E. Environmental Document Summary The project is classified as a Categorical Exclusion (CE) and does not have any significant environmental impacts.
