Asbury Ave To Undergo Major Construction Project

Monmouth County officials break ground for roadway and drainage improvements along a busy section of Asbury Avenue in Tinton Falls.

The 12-month project will improve traffic safety and alleviate flooding on Asbury Avenue between Pine Street and Essex Road.

“When the project is complete, Essex Road will be aligned with Pine Street and a new four-way traffic signal will be in place,” says Freeholder Director Tom Arnone.

“Other improvements will include addressing drainage issues along Asbury Avenue, a bridge replacement and the installation of ADA compliant sidewalks.”

The first phase of the project will realign Essex Road to meet Asbury Avenue at Pine Street.

Subsequent phases will include the replacement of a County bridge (S-6) and the widening and elevating of Asbury Avenue; connecting the improved Asbury Avenue and the realigned Essex Road to existing sections of Asbury Avenue; and the demolition of old Essex Road.

“This will give residents of Seabrook Village and everyone else negotiating the intersection of Essex Road and Asbury Avenue a sorely needed upgrades and improved traffic flow, which will make driving in the area a little easier and safer,” says Freeholder John P. Curley.

“The County understands the inconvenience that this project may have on the motoring public in the area,” says Freeholder Tom Arnone.

“Our concern is for both the immediate and long term safety of the traveling public and all efforts will be made to maintain traffic flow in that area during construction.”

The $2.9 million project is being funded by the County of Monmouth and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority.
