What to Know about Branchburg NJ

Branchburg New Jersey is a small little town located in one of the most western regions in Somerset County. According to the 2010 Census, just under 15,000 people call Branchburg home, which actually reflects a decline since the 2000 Census. The township of Branchburg was incorporated back in 1845. Although Branchburg does have some very busy highways like U.S. Route 202 and U.S. Route 22 cutting right through it, it also has direct access to Intestate 78, Interstate 287 and Route 206. That fact alone is probably one of the main reasons that the Branchburg Municipal Court deals with so many DUI offenses each and every year.
