6/17 – Oceanic Bridge to be Closed Tonight for Maintenance

June 17, 2014

MIDDLETOWN – The Oceanic Bridge (S-31) over the Navesink River will undergo routine maintenance repairs, weather permitting, to its center bascule span from 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 17 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, June 18.

The overnight closure will allow the Monmouth County Division of Bridges staff to perform routine maintenance to the bridge’s movable section.

The bridge will be closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic while the work is conducted. Motorists should plan an alternate route during the overnight hours. Marine traffic will not be affected.

Motor vehicle traffic on Bingham Avenue between Rumson and Middletown (CR-8) can either travel west through Fair Haven and Red Bank to Middletown or travel east through Sea Bright and Highlands to Middletown.

“The work is being done overnight,” said John W. Tobia, director of the Monmouth County Department of Public Works and Engineering. “This schedule provides minimal disruption to the majority of travelers.”

In the case of inclement weather, the work will be done from 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 18 to 5 a.m. on Thursday, June 19.
